No idea and I'm too lazy to watch those vids. What is the exact code you are using? Maybe it's just the wrong command at all... (some videos do contain errors, as they have been created with prerelease software and do not always reflect the final feature).
Thanks for responding Mylenium. Sorry I can't be more helpful. The comp is here for another 24 hrs or so:
It is the swf which runs on the landing page.
In the URL field: "http://www.etc..."
In the Target field: "_self"
(No quote marks)
Sounds alright... I was just being cautious, as in Flash it makes a difference whether you open a specific page or just an URL. well, as per my otehr reply, you stuff doesn't wanna load, so I cannot check. Sorry.
I just successfully created a SWF that opens a web page to the URL specified by a layer marker at that time.
I had to check the Include Layer Mark Web Links box in the SWF Settings dialog box, as described in the "Render and export a composition as a SWF file" section of After Effects Help. Also, I used a layer marker, not a composition marker.
