Hey. I'm working on an animation, but I've been avoiding using movie clips since they rely on Actionscript (right?). While movie clips will work fine exporting to .swf, I want to put the movie on youtube. .mov export doesn't work, so I have to export to a .png sequence (and compile them with Sequimago). The problem is, any movie clips I use won't be kept intact. Any solution or do I just have to cope?
movieclips don't rely on actionscript. you can use actionscript with movieclips but you don't have to use actionscript with movieclips.
anyway, i can't see how that's relevant to your issue except to say you should be exporting a video, not a movieclip. ie, you should export as an mov. if you don't have quicktime, you should use a program to convert your published swf to a move, wmv or avi or mpeg4.
