I'm trying to achieve a video crossfade, and I think I should
be able to do this where the movie in an upper layer has it's
_alpha property changed via a timer (although I'll gladly try any
I import a video, whether avi or flv, it doesn't seem to
matter, or I create a new video instance using the library, but in
all cases, once I set the ._alpha property in actionscript, the
video stops playing. It doesn't matter if I do this in the first
frame, or the Nth frame, as soon as I try to set the property, I
see the alpha carried out, but I'm looking at a still image, and
the video has stopped playing. What am I missing?
Incidentally, I can do fades to black and fades with an image
by tweening an object in a layer above the video, so that works
fine. I just can't get this crossfade to work.
