Export SWF to have all animation in main timeline?

Jul 17, 2013 8:47 AM

I have an animated logo (LOGO.SWF) and I have many instances of the same symbol that play outside the main timeline. I would like to export this SWF (LOGO.SWF) so that I can import it into another FLA (BANNERAD.FLA). But when I import it now into (BANNERAD.FLA) it does not play these symbols as they are not played in the Main Timeline of the original (LOGO.SWF). Is there a way to export the movie (LOGO.SWF) so that you can in a sense have all the animation be in the scene? Does that make sense?


This will be a flash banner ad, so I cannot have it linked through AS.

    The only thing I can think of to suggest is to copy the timeline of the logo file into the timeline of the bannerad file.

    You should be able to make all the animations play the way you want by just switching from MC's to graphic symbols. Just make sure the parent timeline has enough frames to play all the frames in the graphic symbol.


    You could also probably load the swf into a Loader and it should play just fine.
