I have a question that seems simple but i cannot find a yes or no answer to it... If I have a website built using AS2 and a image gallery component using AS3 that is being pulled in externally to a movieclip target, will the AS3 component still function?
Thanks in advance!
No. The AS3 SWF uses a newer version of the virtual machine, and, therefore, cannot be read in by an AS2 project.
If you were going the other way, it is possible (AS2 loading into an AS3 project) - though there are some severe limitations.
Thanks that helps, I knew that an AS3 file wouldnt work, but wasnt sure if an actual component was handled differently.
