I have a long timeline based animation, about 23 minutes in full. When I test or publish the movie, the SWF freezes with about one and a half minutes of playback time left. The streaming audio, however, continues to play.
I know that the error isn't due to some sort of errant stop action at that point in the animation because I have it broken up into several scenes, and if I test the final scene by itself, it does not freeze and plays back correctly. Also, if I rearrange the scenes, the SWF still freezes about 21 minutes and 20 seconds into the animation, which, after rearraging, corresponds to a different point in the animation.
Can anyone tell what could be going wrong? Is there some sort of limit to a SWF's duration? The file size is only 14 megabytes.
Any help or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
My guess is that you are using the default frame rate of 12 frames per second? If so then that time would be about when you hit the 16,000 frame limit.
There is no solution for this other than to have fewer frames.
BTW, I'm not sure on which planet 14 MB counts as an "only"!
