Re: [Swftools-common] FW: Error while converting to SWF

SWF Files only support up to 65536 shapes.  This error is common if your PDF contains lots of shapes producing objects (common offenders are gradients, line drawings, blueprints, etc)

Workaround includes some of the following.

1. Run PDF2SWF with the -poly2bitmap flag.  This will convert PDF shapes to a single bitmap image.  Quality may suffer, if so add multiple x 2 or 4 to boost resolution.

2. Run PDF2SWF with -bitmap flag.  This will convert full PDF to single Image.  Quality may suffer, if so add multiple x 2 or 4 to boost resolution.

3. Save PDF as version 1.3 (Acrobat 4.0) prior to running through PDF2SWF.  This will flatten some of the transparencies and give PDF2SWF a less complex PDF.

Good luck.

I have a PDF file which throws an error when tried to convert into a swf.

I have the attached pdf2swf.exe on my end.


Could someone help me to get this resolved? What could be the possible cause?


Error is  in red below:

Input Message: ERROR   ID Table overflow

Input Message: ERROR   This file is too complex to render- SWF only supports 65536 shapes at once

Error Message: RegOpenKeyEx failed
