Yes, it is theoretically possible. What's the problem?
I created a test catalyst project, basically a button that transitions to another state (page2), and when clicked again goes back to the original state (page1). I published the swf, named it test.swf.
Started a new project, navigate to where I published the swf... I have a folder called "test" containing 2 folders, "deploy-to-web" and "run-local". Each contains a number of files including a main.swf. I select this and it appears on the stage, but now when I run the project it doesn't appear.
So I'm thinking that I need to tell Catalyst what I want it to do with the swf when the page loads, but I'm unsure how to go about doing this.
I tried to replicate this issue, and it didn't work for me either. I actually saw very curious behavior - where I expected the embedded SWF, I saw my original SWF replicated - like when you create a feedback loop with a TV and a video camera.
I will file a bug - that ain't right.
Yeah, what you described also happened to me in another test... I wonder if it has something to do with both *.swf files been called main. They're contained in seperate folders but have the same name.
I actually found a way to achieve what I'm trying to do by creating a custom component, but it still means that I have to replicate my state transitions multiple times (kind of wish they'd be duplicated too when I duplicate a state).
Thanks for your help so far.
