I have been struggling with this with CS4 and CS5. I am working on an animation with a couple of characters comprised of several pngs I converted to symbols. When one characters symbols overlap another characters the swf file shows the stage color rather than the background image I have placed in the file. I can publish it as an html with the option of playing it windowless transparent and it will remove this problem. But I would like to just be able to play the swf file without this issue. Any thoughts on what I have done wrong or what I need to change to fix this error.
I put all the characters onto one PSD file and created my PNGs from there and it elemaniated the problem. If you know any easier way to fix this than creating one giant PSD file I would still apperciate your input. Thanks
It is not the stage color that is over lapping your symbols.
When you mention symbols I presume you have used movie clips for your animation charachters.
I believe the problem is caused because the movie clip's opaquebackground property is set to true.
Please check if this is true, if so make it false and i think your problem might be solved
