Having problems with my e-mag

Hi guys


I'm having problems with an e-mag that I'm working on. I have some animations in the e-mag that renders pretty strange when I export the e-mag from InDesign to .swf. I put a page turn transision on the e-mag, and this tends to render the pages wrong.

The problem is this. I have a box that fades in when the page is loaded, but when i do the page turn, the box is visible when i prag the page from one side to the other. As soon as i let go of the page, the box disapears and then it fades in. Is there a checkbox or something that I need to uncheck?

Has anyone else tried this before?

    That´s a bug. Only way (I know) to avoid this is to create a white rectangle (or other color if background is not white) and make sure it covers your animated element.

    Then create two animations instead of one:


    Animation 1

    Fade white rectangle away


    Animation 2

    Make original animation


    That way white rectangle (or what ever color you are using) flashes during the page turn and because it covers your actual animated element, it keeps invisible....

    Only Adobe knows but if you want my $0.02 I wouldn't count on anything having to do with Flash being a high priority and if I were you I would be looking at alternatives anyway. SWF is on lifesupport on the desktop and pretty much dead on mobile.
