    Combining 10 second xfl loop into a 10 minute flash counter

    aandjmom

      Hello all,

       

      Flash Newbie here.   I need help desparately.  I made a  10 second xmas motion graphic  loop in After effects that I converted to xfl so I can combine it with a ten minute countdown timer in Flash CS5.  Im having trouble combining the two.  I thought i could simply   take all the xfl layers make them one symbol and run the counter   (which is in AS2)  but Its not working.  Not sure what im missing.  I just need the motion graphic to loop  underneath the timer for the full ten minutes.

       

      All suggestions will be appreciated.

       

      thx in advance

          I'm going to take a wild guess that they never updated AVM1 (ActionScript 2.0 runtime) for XFL. Try importing your XFL into an ActionScript 3.0 document just to see if it runs. If it does, 99% sure you can't use AS2.0 with XFL.

           

          This Adobe page on using XFL doesn't mention AS2.0 or 3.0 nor AVM so I can't immediately confirm it. I'm just going by how long AVM2/AS3.0 has been out and when Adobe really started integrating suite software.
