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
(Hochschule Harz, University of Applied Science)
No. You can't use Flash 9 compiled files within Director at
Of course, since Flash 9 doesn't exist yet, that makes it
difficult for the Director folks to keep up with
you are using some sort of prerelease beta version, that is.
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)
compatibility. For now, you are stuck with Flash 8, which to
of my knowledge is in fact the latest version.
For the Flash IDE 8 is current, although there is the Flash 9
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
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.
