Here's the scenario: I have a main flash movie that has some
buttons and a container. When you click a button, a MovieclipLoader
loads an external swf. Both files were originally created with
Flash 7 and previously had very little actionscript. Mainly just
some stops, gotos and code for a preloader. The swf being loaded
previously had some static content and worked fine. Now I want it
to load an xml file and fade in some text, but the actionscript
tweens don't work. If I play the swf by itself, it works fine.
However, when I load it into the main movie the tweens don't work.
Right now, for testing purposes, I have the text load with _alpha =
100 and wait a couple frames before the tween script. When the
tween script starts everything being tweened disappears. I figure
it has something to do with the fact that they were Flash 7, and
maybe something isn't being imported right? But even if I publish
them as Flash 7, the tweens don't work. I've embeded all the fonts
too. Even non-text (images, shapes, etc) won't tween. They just
disappear. I've googled this and searched the forums, but I can't
find anything. So, any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
Just as information the Tween class uses the _root timeline
to generate an onEnterFrame event to animate objects. If you
mistakenly used the onEnterFrame on the _root to create another
thing like a loader for example. That might be erasing the
tweenings. Try using the onEnterFrame on an empty movie
