I hope you guys can help me with this because this is a work project. Here's the situation:
The entire .fla animation consists of nothing but two really long movie clips. Which are placed on frames 1 and 2 of the main timeline. Now for reasons that are too deep for me to go into explaination about my boss is telling me that I have to have everything main timeline -no movie clips. I've tried copypasting all of the frames but they all paste wayyy to large on the main timeline and they wind up in different places on the stage.
How can I move all of the frames from my two movie clips onto the main timeline without everything breaking? Better yet - is there any way to just convert a movie clip into an .fla?
Alternatively, for syncing purposes is there a way to get a sound clip that's placed on the main timeline to play back WITHIN a movie clip when you play the .fla?
you're on the right track. note the x,y of your movieclip in frame 1. create a new layer and paste all the frame 1 movieclip's frames into that new layer. click the edit multiple frames icon below your timeline. select all the frames, click an on-stage object. in the properties panel, change the x,y of the all the selected objects to the previously noted values
