Hi everyone. As i love Adobe for all great products such as Illustrator, Photoshop and Dreamweaver - i'm really, really pissed off right now! Flash CS 5.5 is so incredibly buggy. I experienced crashes while saving files, then corrupting whole .fla file. I'm experiencing that when i insert something in my unfinished project for example from Illustrator everything just dissapears - the timeline is there, the assets in library are there, but nothing on the screen! I have Windows 7 64bit, 16GB RAM, over 30 GB cash memory (or page memory, don't kniw what it is in english) but it still very offten give me message that i'm "out of memory"! How can i be out of memery for god sake?? I have opened only my Flash app and just make something easy, like adding motion tween on my MC and suddenly - "you are out of memory" appears! I'm working 2 weeks on product presentation for my company in Flash and it is Hell! Now i save every succesfull step in separate .fla, so i have over 50 versions of it, becouse i'm afraid tahat it can crash any time and completly corrupt my file. And it happens very often.
Ok - this product presentation is large one, it is 1280x720 with large number of 300 dpi HD photos. Of course - it is. So what - i'm not able to make this big, HD flash animation (becouse it may run on flatscreens in our company shops as a presentation)? Why not? Our company pay for Adobe Design premium a lot of money, so i expecting it will work properly. Now i'm stuck. I prepare every of my scenes in illustrator (so expet product photos it's all in vector), divide it in layers and then import into Flash scene. As far i have 5 scenes don this way successfully (with incredible amount of crashes and errors - didn't mention that stupid TLF text, wich is preset so if i forget to change it, my whole file go to hell - why?? Why is this text format causes so much trouble and why is it implicit???). Now i'm trying to import another, sixth scene from illustrator and it ends in two scenarios - either it completly crashes whole Flash app (with unexpectet error), or it import something, but it couses that everything dissapears - once again. There are timelines, but nothing on screen.
Work, wich i may have done week ago is incredible pain for me now and i'm really pissed off. And it doesn't happend only in this large project, i experienced this unbeliveble problems just in small animations, like prop banner. Am I only who have this problems?
Sorry for my outrage and bad english.
