I am still looking for a better way to get around this problem. Any Ideas?
go through the TextFormat properties, hopefully u find some way.
Not sure if know exactly what your asking but you can use the <IMG> tag to embedd an image into a textbox, however, you cannot place text ontop of the image.
Also, why does your text on the graphic look bad? Are you making Flash expand the graphic after you place it in the program? The text should look clean and clear in the graphic as long as you are not resizing it within Flash.
Yes Tim I am using the <img> tag and I know that I can’t place text over the image. I have set the height and width to be the exact size of the image. However When you go to the webpage it will open the movie to the maximum size based on the resolution of your display; however I do maintain the aspect ratio of the movie. For testing I did set a fix size to the size of the movie. Sometimes the fix size (1000x750) looks better and sometimes a larger size (example 1280x1024). I believe that the main problem is the fact the size of the image is 670 pixels wide by 25 pixels high and of the 25 pixels the text is only 18 pixels tall. In Photoshop this makes it about a 1.75 point font. As you can see the real problem is that I don’t have enough pixels to make up the text. This is why I am looking for an alterative way to create the text.
I tried importing the image into flash as a graphic symbol and then using the text tool to create the text. The results looked real sharp, the text was nice and crisp (just what I wanted). The problem is that I could not find a way to place the graphic symbol into the dynamic text area like id did using the <img> tag. This symbol needs to scroll as you scroll the text in the text area.
This is why I am asking for help. I am looking for some ideas that may work.
