Hello and thanks for looking...
I have followed this animation using bones and armatures tutorial:
(which is superb and thanks to the poster)
My problem is that i cannot get them to be animated inside a browser.
I have created the armature and the poses etc. and I have then selected all the leg parts and converted them to a graphic symbol as per the instructions (i have nested the leg symbols inside the 'leg armature' symbol (point 12 near figure 27). I have connected all the bones fine not a problem...
But if i then look at them in a browser they are not animated, but if i press play inside the little library window it is animated!
So each indivdual armature symbol works a treat in the library window (individually). However when i save them as whole (i.e. a walk cycle symbol as per point 1 near figure 39) nothing is animated. I have motion tweened them to move across the stage (so they have the frames to be animated) but there are no animated parts when previewed - the character just glides with no moving parts.
I have re-read it several times and cannot find what i am doing wrong! It is probably something really simple and i am being dim - it would be nice if you could tell me how Sorry if this is confusing. My head is hurting again.
Thanks v much.
(just to note i did select AS3 and i have CS6)
you need to extend the timeline that contains the animated parts.
Dude your a superstar!
I read this and thought i had done that, but it turns out i needed to extend the frames before i converted to the last 'complete' symbol!
(i was half way through re doing it - and gettting annoyed!)
Thanks ever so
