I have imported a swf file (a simple animated background) into my Flash Catalyst project. When running the project the swf displays with no problem.
After publishing the project, FC creates two folders for me. I tried running the Main.html file inside the run-local folder and the project works fine. When I tried to open the Main.html file inside the deploy-to-web folder however, the project runs but the swf file I imported does not display at all.
Is this normal? I have not yet tried uploading my project into a server because I wanted to make sure it worked fine when run locally. Anyone who can give me answers will be much appreciated. Thanks everybody.
The deploy-to-web version should only work correctly when posted to and loaded from a server.
The run-local version should only run correctly from your local machine's hard drive.
Here's a longer explanation of the difference between the two.
Ok great thanks. Will keep that in mind.
