I am making an application that is going to need to use several custom MovieClip-based classes from Flash. I'm not sure if I'm using the terminology right. What I have is a Flash file with movie clips, each clip has a class with properties and methods. Many of the methods control what happens in the clip.
For example, if there was a clip "Person" with walking and sitting animation, there are methods "sit" and "walk" which would play the appropriate parts. I need to add dynamically several "Person" clip/objects to the Flex app, and command them to walk or sit when needed.
What's the best workflow for this? How do I save the clips? Or is is best just to do the whole thing in Flash?
Have you looked into using the Flex Component Kit for Flash?
If you want to use components for Flex 4 using Flash CS4+ you will probably want to use the latest MXP file here:
