    Flash asset xtra 9

    beekay84
      Hi,
      I want to integrate Flash 9 (ActionScript 3) compiled files into a director project. To integrate flash files I need the flash asset xtra. But with the current version of the flash asset xtra, I can only integrate Flash 8 compiled files. Is there any update of the flash asset xtra? Or any other way to import flash 9 compiled files?

          No. You can't use Flash 9 compiled files within Director at this time.
          Of course, since Flash 9 doesn't exist yet, that makes it pretty
          difficult for the Director folks to keep up with compatibility. Unless
          you are using some sort of prerelease beta version, that is. I can't
          find any mention of Flash 9 on Adobe's normal Flash site.

          Typically, a new version of Flash will come out, then in a few months to
          a year, Director will have a new release (or an upgrade) which adds
          compatibility. For now, you are stuck with Flash 8, which to the best
          of my knowledge is in fact the latest version.

            For the Flash IDE 8 is current, although there is the Flash 9 public beta.
            For the player however, 9 is the current version and has been around for a
            while now. This is needed for compatibility with all the Flex apps starting
            to appear, and Flash 9 once it's finally ready. I think they need a better
            (shorter) cycle between when a new player comes out and when an update to
            the Xtra appears.
