I have what I know is a very simple question, with what must be a very simple solution, however no tutorial I have found adresses the problem I'm having. Perhaps I can't phrase it correctly for google.
I have imported a few swf files into a new project, and I want to drag them into the timeline. The only thing is, I can't drag them from the project menu to the timeline. It simply won't let me, I get the little circle with a line through it every time I try to drag anything. Every tutorial I've found has just said "drag & drop" which doesn't help me. Clearly there's a step I've missed but I have no idea what it is. Here is a screenshot of my project. Notice my timeline is completely empty, it doesn't have any of the video or audio layers I've seen on all the tutorial videos.
You need to Create a Sequence in the timeline.
Thanks for your post. Please check this link which has the same discussion http://forums.adobe.com/message/5604927#5604927
Please update once you are able to create the sequence or if you have any other issues.
