Embed same SWF file multiple times in Flash file

Apr 9, 2013 11:35 AM

Tags: #flash #swf #import #multiple #embed

I want to include the same SWF file multiple times in the same flash file. I have a plain box that is clear, that becomes visible when clicked. I want to create a grid of them (about 50+). If I copy the layers and actions, they interfere with each other so I want to embed multiple SWF files into one file and then save it to embed in an interactive PDF. If I save one square and embed it into the PDF multiple times, the file becomes too big to work. How can I embed interactive SWF files over and over into 1 SWF file? I don't have a ton of knowledge with Flash....

    you edit your html file to embed multiple copies of your swf.

     

    it's generally easier to control the layout if you use swfobject (but you can just copy the code published by flash pro) to embed the swf.

    create a new swf that loads your current swf.

     

    if you're using as3, use 50+ different loaders to load 50+ copies of your current swf.
