    Flash file components

    stevencg7 Level 1

      Hello,

       

      After affects has a feature where you can export a document with all the files associated in your scene. Is that possible (or something like it) in Flash CC?

       

      Thanks in advance

          The good ole collect files function.

           

          Flash is a different beast. At best you can export a XFL which is a FLA converted to an XML file which has all the libraries contents in subfolders, rather than embedded in the FLA. But I anticipate you mean Flash would actually recognize externally loaded assets and bundle the FLA together with anything external that is also loaded.

           

          No, there's no 'Project' aspect of Flash CC that can do that for you.

           

          There may be an extension or JSFL but it's highly unlikely it will be foolproof. There are too many situations where external assets are loaded in dynamic ways (such as generating a filename based on concatenating strings, etc etc) that just won't work.

            I found another way.

             

            In publish setttings there is a "generate size report" it gives you a list. Not as clean as after effects but it does the job.

              Good job! If you find a way to bind to that window in JSFL and automate the task you should write that into a command. People might want to buy functionality like this.
