Movie clips not animating upon Preview/Export to video

Mar 26, 2013 8:23 AM


I just downloaded a 30 day trial of CS 6 and imported my CS4 project.  When I Test the scene, I don't see the movie clips animating- they are just stuck on the first frame.  Also, when I export to video, it's the same thing.  However, when I export to .swf, the movie clips seem to play fine in the flash player.


Anyone have a solution to this problem?


Thanks for the help!

    Do you have stop(); commands in the first frame?

    Nested MovieClips do that (and have in every version of Flash I can remeber, back to Flash MX or 4 or something like that). If you want them to work in an "Actionscript-free" environment, you'll need to make them into Graphics and provide enough frames on the root timeline to allow the Graphic's timeline to play from beginning to end.
