Actionscript not working together.

Dec 31, 2011 12:51 PM

I followed this tutorial: ailer-in-flash/


And got the effect.


Then I added it to my flash file that I'm working on, but everytime I add an instance name to ANYTHING I get this error:


1046: Type was not found or was not a compile-time constant:Movieclip


If I get rid of everything that has an instance name it will actually work, but I need instance names for my preloader bar.


Why is this and what can I do to fix this?

    See if adding a line to import the MovieClip class along with the rest of your imports helps...


        import flash.display.MovieClip;
