A LOT of people are having trouble exporting swf files to mov
without having their hard work look like crap because of artifacts
being left behind and traces of mc all over the stage. I was one of
those people. KEYWORD: "WAS".....
I really hope this process works for everyone cause it does
1ST: You have finished your animation and are ready to send
it to your boss. Great! but dont!
2ND: You need to FILE>EXPORT>EXPORT MOVIE to make sure
your animation actually still looks like your...
animation and doesnt have distortions.
3RD: Oooooohhhhh crap it does... big surprise. of course it
does. IT ALWAYS DOES!!!!! But all is not lost.
4TH: Go back to the .fla. Now drop that frame rate down to
about half of what ever it is.
5TH: AWWWWEE what do ya know, NO DISTORTING! Now raise it up
6TH: No distorting!. Now repeat step 5 until you are back to
your original frame rate. And export. NO
DISTORTIONS!!!!!!!!! Jesus Christ, Monkey balls!
Yes I know completely ridiculous. And your thinking, "This
guy is an idiot and just wants attention". That maybe true, but i
swear by my momma that this works. I dont know why it does, but it
does. It is completely annoying to have to keep exporting you file
that many times but slightly less annoying then having your hard
work completely ruined.
This process is to save work that you have already done. But
from now on before you start a new .fla keep that frame rate at 20.
Thats the only frame rate that works for me.
I really hope this works for everyone because when I was
looking for the answer to this problem, I got NOTHING! Absolutely
no help. Some people dont even have this problem at all! So if my
process doesnt work for you, I am convinced that the problem lies
somewhere in the frame rate you are using. Keep adjusting it till
it fixes those distortions. Good luck and hard work to ya!
Hi ! Good work, thank you!
there's another problem that resulted from the lack of
documentation (finally could be solved with help from an Adobe
how if you want to export nested/embedded movieclips with
animations beyond Flash Player 5(3-D or ActionScript)?
there is no hint that the following is ESSENTIAL:
in the QT-export settings do NOT check "if last Frame is
reached" (xcuse my translation, I 've got a german version) but
check "after times passed:" and fill in many hours.
