ByteArray to BitmapData

The Below code demonstrates the conversion of ByteArray to BitmapData. In the below case, SWF is loaded and converted into BitmapData

private function swfLoad_complete(evt:Event):void {
private function byteArrayToBitmapData(ba:ByteArray):void {
loader.contentLoaderInfo.addEventListener(Event.COMPLETE, getBitmapData);
private function getBitmapData(e:Event):void {
var content:* = loader.content;
var BMPData:BitmapData = new BitmapData(content.width,content.height);
var UIMatrix:Matrix = new Matrix();
BMPData.draw(content, UIMatrix);

    can you help to decompile an swf file?

  1. The “loader.loadBytes” was very helpful. Did not think of that function.

    How about the other way around? BitmapData to ByteArray? I tried getPixels… but the bytearray is empty.

    Nm, figured it out.

    var rec:Rectangle = new Rectangle(0, 0, imgWidth, imgHeight);
    var ba:ByteArray = bmpData.getPixels(rec);
