I have a Director MX2004 app that I would like to use to control a Flash swf written in AS3. I know I can't embed that kind of SWF file in Director, so I thought I would try to use this method:
Embed an AS2 swf in director and communicate with that.
Have that swf use the localconnection to communicate with the AS3 swf running in Air.
I can verify that the 2 swfs communicate when running in Flash and Air
I can verify that Director can communicate with the AS2 swf embedded in it.
But I can't link it all together. Send a command to the AS2 swf from Director doesn't continue down the chain to talk to the AS3 swf.
Is this something that could possibly work, or am I beating a dead horse?
Did you have any luck with this method?
I am using Dir 12 now and Flash CS6.
