For a school project, I am creating animation over a video of myself. After some discussion, I decided that Flash is the best way to do this but I can not import an edited video of me talking into flash in order to play around with. In final cut, you can save it as a .fcp or export as a quicktime movie. When I import the video as a quicktime movie, you can only play the video in flash when publish it or watch a preview.
My question is, is there a way to have a video in flash that runs with the timeline instead of needing to click play once it's published? If I can't do it with the video formats final cut provides, is there a way to change the file type so it does work? Is it even possible to do this with flash? Keep in mind that the video is over 8 minutes long.
