    text animation effect is too wide

      Hi,

       

      I hope for many of you it's an easy question.

       

      I created a text animation effect with "Data Stream", then exported to SWF. It's a nice effect, but after importing (Control-R) the SWF into Flash CS4, it's too wide for later using the "Drop Shadow" filter in Flash. I got this error when I apply the shadow: "Warning: Filter will not render.  The DisplayObject's filtered dimensions (9212, 79) are too large to be drawn."

      I realized the problem is the text effect is too wide. I tried using the mask function in AE, but still got the same "too wide" effect after exporting.

       

      Please give me some hint how to reduce the size of the effect. Thanks.
