I have a project that as a FLASH file finishes playing,
Director loads up the next one, starts that flash file playing and
Having upgraded to 10.1.1 I now have a semi inconsistent
behaviour and want to know if anyone else has experienced it !!
This is the scenario I'm dealing with
10 frame dierctor file
Sprite(3) is a flash movie
Director frame(10) has a 'Go The Frame handler'
The playback head enters frame 1 and starts playing the Flash
Play head sits at frame 10 while Flash file is played out.
Flash file has this behaviour attached to it
on exitFrame me
if not sprite(pCurrentSprite).playing = 1 then
Cool, when Flash reaches its' final frame - playing would = 0
and Director would DoSomething. But it doesnt, the Flash file
starts again, sound has been dropped then at some random point
Flash stops -- playing = 0 then Director does the right thing and
Flash files dont have (actionscript: stop) at the end (but
have worked pre update)
Flash cast member has 'loop' turned off (both checkbox &
Director FrameRate = 999
My point is:
Flash file is not registering a correct 'playing=0' OR
Director is not picking it up
Flash File randomly announces (playing=0) on second pass
(Which director picks up)
On second pass looses sound
Thought I'd put this out as I dont have access to .fla files
for another week so cannot test the use of a stop() actionscript.
Interested to know if any1 else has happened across bizzareness
like this !!
Turn the frame rate of the Director movie down to something
like 15 fps. At the rate that you are using, Director is
frame information changes every 999th of a second. This is
too fast for the information from the Flash movie to be
SHould've mentioned that it was at 15 initially, thought I'd
bump it up in an effort to try get the 'stop' recognised.
Alas to no avail. The weirdest thing is it gets 1/2 way thru
the second run before it mysteriously gives the 'stop' command and
Director takes over !!
Nothing short of bizzare. I think I will re-install Director
and not apply the patches and see where that leaves me !!
