What is SWF?
SWF, an Adobe Flash file format and stands for Small Web Format, enables users to watch graphics or videos from a storage drive or online. Currently, SWF is the dominant format for displaying "animated" vector graphics on the Web. It may also be used for programs, commonly browser games. Also, it is commonly used when embedding video in websites, either as large animations or small effects buttons.
When talking about SWF, there are two kinds of it: vector based animation and raster based video, and here we are talking about the latter, cause most of Vector based animation is not video and it needs user interaction, so it's hard to convert them to other video formats.
What is GIF?
The Graphics Interchange Format is a bitmap image format that was introduced by CompuServe in 1987 and has since come into widespread usage on the World Wide Web due to its wide support and portability.
The format supports up to 8 bits per pixel for each image, allowing a single image to reference its own palette of up to 256 different colors chosen from the 24-bit RGB color space. It also supports animations and allows a separate palette of up to 256 colors for each frame.
