I cannot get an animated graphic symbol to be animated in my browser...

Hello and thanks for looking...

 

I have followed this animation using bones and armatures tutorial:

http://www.adobe.com/devnet/flash/articles/character_animation_ik.html http://

(which is superb and thanks to the poster)

 

My problem is that i cannot get them to be animated inside a browser.

I have created the armature and the poses etc. and I have then selected all the leg parts and converted them to a graphic symbol as per the instructions (i have nested the leg symbols inside the 'leg armature' symbol (point 12 near figure 27).  I have connected all the bones fine not a problem...

 

But if i then look at them in a browser they are not animated, but if i press play inside the little library window it is animated! 

 

So each indivdual armature symbol works a treat in the library window (individually).  However when i save them as whole (i.e. a walk cycle symbol as per point 1 near figure 39) nothing is animated.  I have motion tweened them to move across the stage (so they have the frames to be animated) but there are no animated parts when previewed - the character just glides with no moving parts.

 

I have re-read it several times and cannot find what i am doing wrong!  It is probably something really simple and i am being dim - it would be nice if you could tell me how   Sorry if this is confusing. My head is hurting again.

 

Thanks v much.

 

(just to note i did select AS3 and i have CS6)

    you need to extend the timeline that contains the animated parts.
