I am a beginner to catalyst, working on a simple project using some small flash animations. The first animation I uploaded to catalyst worked fine, but all subsequent animations do not work! Catalyst only imports the first frame of the swf file. It is driving me kind of nuts, and because this is such a ne(ish) program I can't find anything anywhere to help me!
Ok, so i added a .swf control to the transition and it played fine. Any idea why the first one played without me having to do this? very odd...
Looks like you solved the issue - by placing Action Sequences (SWF Control) on the SWF from the timeline panel
Re. the file playing as you start, did you create an "On Application Start" interaction?
Here are some help links for others following the thread.
