    Flash Movie or Coding in Flex

    Salman_Qureshi
      I have a requirement from my client to embed a flash movie as an SWC into their flex application. Now I have heard from a few people that it is sometimes better to not embed and code everything in Actionscript. The flash application is a simple Spherical 3D GLOBE graph with 5 equal portoins. the portion in front has its details shown in a table on the side. When clicked the globe revolves and the next portion is displayed and the table is refreshed.

      Would it be easier for me to embed this Flash 8 movie (actionscript 2) into my flex application (actionscript 3) or would I be able to create such a graph using actionscript by itself.

      I understand that most members on this forum have more experience with Flex than myself. So please advise which route to take.

      Thanks

          First this forum is intended for questions about Flex Builder. Flex language questions should be posted in the Flex General Discussion forum.

          I am not a flash guy, and graphics of that nature are way beyond me. I would embed the asset. Now, while we have the AS2/AS3 issue, you will have to communicate with the as2 movie using localConnection.

          Google this, you will find a lot of discussion.
