I currently have a code that looks like this:

.\swfrender "C:\users\****\My Documents\****\****.swf" -X 300 -o "C:\users\****\My Documents\****\****.png"

However, SWFTools coverts the SWF to an image before it can even load. Is there a way to let the SWF load and then for SWFTools to work its magic? Perhaps, a delay? Any help would be highly appreciated, thanks!

Looks like an issue/bug in SWFRender. If the program itself doesn't support an argument for delay, or you cannot break up the operation into two parts (load SWF, then save as image), I don't see how you can insert a delay in between. What sort of Flash files are these anyway? Animated ones? What are you trying to achieve exactly? Maybe there's a better way. – Karan Jan 3 '13 at 5:53
Well, my current SWF, loads an external SWF from a URL, and re-positions it. This is because the SWF from the actual URL is not centered. However, I think that I can save the original SWF and then just re-position it via SWFTools, to render it as an image. Is this possible? – Gkhan14 Jan 3 '13 at 12:10
Perhaps, but I'm not conversant enough with SWFTools to confirm. A look at the docs might help. – Karan Jan 3 '13 at 16:38
