What is SVG?
Scalable Vector Graphics (SVG) is an XML-based vector image format for two-dimensional graphics with support for interactivity and animation. The SVG specification is an open standard developed by the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) since 1999.

Export as SVG Sequence in Flash Professional:
This functionality was not provided within Flash Pro by default but a lot users started requesting for this soon after the release of Flash Pro CC 2014.
So, here’s an extension I’ve created that lets you export your entire timeline as a Sequence of SVG Images at once and can prove to be a huge time saver!

Download and Installation:
Download the Extension from here: Export_SVG_Sequence.ZXP
Double-click on the ZXP extension and install it using the Extension Manager CC.

Note: Make sure you have Extension Manager CC and Flash Professional CC 2014 or later for this to work.

How to Use?
After installing the above extension, open your FLA file in Flash Pro.
Goto Commands Menu > Export as SVG Sequence
A sequence of SVG Images (corresponding to each frame on the current Timeline) gets exported to the same location where the FLa file is saved.

If you wish to export only a Symbol from the library, open that Symbol in Edit Mode and use the same Command > Export as SVG Sequence.
