There's something issue like this, but it related to clip movies into nonrectangular shapes, they appear as full frame rectangles in PDF or SWF. But there is a work around solution.
I replicate your issue here on indesign CS6, make object state (circle frames), add button to go to next page then export to SWF then place in indesign and export to interactive pdf, it work fine.
Thanks for replying. Your directions is what I have been doing. When I do this I get a rectagular set of images not a circle that transitions to next image.
You can see in screen shot below what I am talking about. I have no issues creating SWF or buttons to control it. They work fine in PDF but they do not preserve the circle I put them in.
I have also tried placing the exprted (rectagular) SWF into the circle frame and it does not preserve the circle shape once exported to PDF interactive.
It is as-if tje multistage object is limited only to a rectagular shape. I am desperate to figure this out.
I'm curious about this: what is a "multistage" object? Can not find the word or just "stage" in relation to "object" in the Indesign Reference.
I think they mean "multi-state" object or MSO.
That is great! Were you using a circle shape JPG or PNG exported from
Photoshop? I was trying to insert a picture into a circular frame. I
elected to use a circle JPG and had no issues. Initially I was trying to
make the Multi stage object out of a set of indesign frames with pictures
inserted and it did not work. Okay so I got past that. Now I am having an
issue scaling. When I place the SWF file it is not to scale I left scale to
100% of document and set a point with guides for inserting but part of the
image is removed.
any advice on getting things to stay to scale?

When you place SWF in the frame go to Object menu>Fitting>Fit Content Proportionally
