I am completely new at this and under deadline.
I created a photoshop psd file with tweens, rendered to video, then uploaded as animation in fireworks.
In fireworks I set the frame delays to be what I want. I want to save as swf (don't know flash at all) and when I do the frame delays go out the windows. I looked at older forum posts and see that this is what happens but how can I make it happen some other way? I tried setting frame rates in the save as option window to 1 to 30 to whatever and no luck.
My tweens in the png file at 7/100 and my main images I want to appear longer are 350/100.
I am a novice at all this! Thanks for whatever help you can provide.
Don't waste your time tinkering with the Fireworks-Flash export; Flash doesn't recognize frame delay the same way Fireworks does. The swf has one single playback speed for the entire project (perhaps the biggest limitation of Flash-based animations), hence the flash exported from Fireworks will lose the frame delay values of Fw, no matter what.
You might have better luck introducing fake frame delays into the swf using the Flash authoring environment. Below are two ways that show you how to do just that:
There is an Options button in the Fireworks 'Save As' dialog box that enables you to set the frame rate for your SWF export.
