    swf increase size mystery publishing into Flash 8 and Flash CS4

    ami078

      Hello,

       

      i discovered recently that a swf build with Flash 8 IDE, published for Flash Player 8 get a different size when published with Flash CS4 IDE.

      You can reproduce that effect with all sort of swf.

       

      I did a report for each publish (same .fla into Flash 8 IDE and Flash CS4 IDE)

      The result was : all vector graphics, all fonts, all bitmaps, all actionscript code increased

       

      From test.fla, i did one key frame with :

      - a dynamic TextField with some simple chars in it = "Test Chars",

      - a simple shape with brush tool

      - and one movieclip with an ordinary circle


      Size report from Flash 8 :
