Hi Electra369 and welcome to our community
I don't suppose the answer of just keeping Flash out of the picture and using Captivate as an application in and of itself is what you are looking for, eh?
Unfortunately I have no real answers, only speculations and educated guesses. I'm guessing that something about the exporting of the Captivate to Flash is causing a color shift for those red and gray captions. You are mostly correct with reference to the pixel color used for transparency in Captivate. It's either the upper left or the lower left corner pixel (depending on the object). But that's Captivate, not Flash. I have no clue as to what Flash might use for determining the transparency of a given object.
Hopefully one of our resident Flash gurus will be able to offer more insight here... Rick
It sounds as if you are doing everything I would normally do to make a custom caption which works. How interesting that this problem is only happening on certain colors. That may be able to help us track down the problem.
Would you feel able to send me something to look at, privately? Although I feel sure you have tried everything logical already, sometimes it helps to have a fresh pair of eyes, and I would do whatever I could to try and help you. The most helpful thing would be the original Fireworks pngs and one working set of bmps and their fcms, and one none-working set.
Sadly, I don't speak Flash at all well, either, but I might be able to spot something quirky happening before the captions arrive at or leave Captivate. I make a lot of custom captions, love them love them love them, but anything good in digital art can occasionally behave like an exotic pet!
Good luck, and let me know if I can help.
Two other very long shots - blowing up the Fireworks image to a kabillion per cent to check for rogue edge pixels. Or (and what do I know here) checking there is no tolerance value set for the transparency in Flash which might be affecting things.
I know. Sorry if these seem simplistic or crazy, but I always think it is worth blurting like this. One thought leads to another and at some point the answer will spring into someone's mind.
