    CS3 fla conversion to MX fla

    TheHumanProjekt
      Hi, hows everyone doing?
      Well, I am a student in a communications technology class, and right now we're working on Flash animation. I Currently have flash CS3 at home, and I worked on it a bit at home, but today at school, It wouldn't open to the school version of flash (MX 6) I'm just wondering if there is a way to make the CS3 fla files open in MX?

      By the way, I saved the Anination in CS3 under action script 2.0

          no there is no way. these two versions are way too far incompatible with each other.

          This is only for export purpose, player compatibility and such. You won't be able to
          open CS3 fla in MX.

            Alright, well, I saved the flash as a Flash 8 document, then used flash 8 to save it as MX 2004, and it still wont work, any ideas as to why?

              Because MX 2004 is Flash 7. Now you need to find a copy of Flash MX2004 and save the FLA as Flash MX.

              Tell your school your problem. It's a serious issue when students are unable to work on their projects outside of school. Your school really should upgrade to Flash CS3. Any communications technology class that is working with 7-year old technology (ancient in the software field) is suspect anyway.

                even down saving using so many different software won't help.
                Unless the file has nothing but timeline tween. None of the new features
                are supported in Flash MX, from components to filters and action script.
                Again, unless it's a very basic timeline animation, down saving with 5 different
                software, one version at the time, won't help. There are just too many differences
                in these applications.
