    I have the same problem w/ 2 different vcams

    strangereason Level 1

      Okay peoples,

       

      I'm putting together an animation in Flash CS4, on a MacBook Pro running OS X 10.5.8, and I positively need to be able to use the vcam (of course!).  But I can't make it work.

       

      Essentially, when I try to test or publish the movie w/ the vcam in the top layer as a tween (motion or Classic), the player won't recognize the vcam window dimensions as the player window dimensions - so, for example, everything remains the same size; I can see the vcam viewfinder as it is in creative mode, and it will move and change dimension as the tween dictates, but it is impossible to make the movie 'see' through the vcam's perspective, thus making zooming and panning - the only reasons to use a vcam - impossible - void.

       

      To be very honest, I have a similar problem w/ the only other vcam being offered out there, through YouTube, for free - which is why I'm bringing this to the forums - I'm probably doing something wrong with both vcams.

       

      I notice generally that some very knowledgeable people here don't even recommend vcams but rather 'old fashioned', sleeve-rolling animation, re-sizing symbols, etc.  I will do that if I must.  But I have to try and ask for your collective assistance.

       

      I.  need.  your.  help.  ...for whatever it is worth: THANK YOU.

       

      the compiler errors I get from trying to test or publish the more common AS3 vcam are these:

      here are the compiler errors I receive when trying to test or publish the movie w/ the other, 'Self-Rendering' vcam that's out there, available and demonstrated on YouTube:
