    No Dynamic Text in Export

    surgence Level 1
      I cannot not find a reason for this problem! I am using vars to create the text of a menu. When I view it in swf it works great! Unfortunatley the system I am taking the animation to does not support flash. So I have to export to a PNG Sequence. When I do this the images lose all functionality of the actionscript.

      I have searched for awhile and still have not come up with an answer. If this has been answered in the past can someone please point me in the right direction? Or if you know the answer! I would greatly appreciate it!

          Okay.

          The only thing that supports ActionScript is the Flash Player. PNGs are
          not inherently programmable. The same thing would happen if you exported to
          BMPs or any other image format.

          When you export a series of images, Flash is not interpreting
          ActionScript. It is only exporting what is manually drawn on the Stage for
          each frame. To get what you're after, you may be able to export to a video
          format, then take your stills from that. FLASHANTS SWF2Video does that sort
          of thing.
