After creating animations in Flash, I use Export Motion XML to get the animation data I need, which includes things like the xy movement, rotation, scale, etc.
It includes everything I need EXCEPT for the name of the symbol used each frame. What Flash gives me is merely the name of the symbol used in the first frame, which obviously doesn't work if the layer includes any symbol swaps (and many layers do).
I have not familiarized myself with ActionScript because my cursory look at Export Motion XML seemed to be exactly what I needed, but it turns out the one hitch is this issue with symbol names. So if ActionScript is part of the solution, please explain it to me like I'm five.
How can I get my XML to include the name of the symbol used in EACH frame?
