Freely Import SWF to iMovie'11/'09/'08/HD for Editing

I am using a screen record program called 'Jing', on my mac. The one problem I am encountering is editing video in iMovie. The clips I'm making are '.swf' (flash) files, that for some reason, I cannot seem to open in iMovie. Can I convert these to .mov files for free in some way? Or maybe I need to figure out a way to get a free program to edit my swf files?
