Prevent loop in .swf file.

Apr 18, 2013 11:13 AM

How does one prevent .swf files from looping?

 

I don’t use Flash much but my swfs always loop and I don’t know how to stop them from doing so.

    in the last frame of each timeline that you do not want to loop, in the actions panel add:

     

    stop();

     

    ////////////

    or, if you're swf will be embedded in an html file, you can use a html setting (file>publish settings>html>playback: loop) to control whether the main timeline loops.

    there's an html setting for the main timeline:  (file>publish settings>html>playback: loop) to control whether the main timeline loops.

     

    textfields have both letter spacing and leading properties that can be assigned in the properties panel (during author-time) and using actionscript (during run-time).  make sure you embed your font(s) if you want precise text control.

    you can click text (to select it)>click modify>break apart>click modify>break appart to change text to editable/tweenable shapes.

     

    you embed fonts in each textfield just like letter spacing and leading.  it's not a global setting.
