I tried both SWF format and SWFT and the difference was ... nearly none [Confused]

The movie clip I exported was some spheres and all it does it frame by frame clip.

In the help file it says that SWFT importer make layered content of the animation. It crated only a layer named 'Color' and the layer content was only frame by frame animation.

I don't get it, what I am missing?

You need a more complex animation to truly unleash the power of the SWFT. Check out the following links for more information about the differences between the two formats. You can also consult the User Guide.

you need to check the other options; shadows, reflections, highlights. each of these is placed in another layer.
as far as animation is concerned, if the camera moves then EVERYTHING moves so it won't split up moving/non-moving parts but if the camera isn't moving then you'll get a moving layer an d a static layer.
