    Importing video  problem

    celebritymusic Level 1

      Hi

       

      I'm trying to import a FLV file into Flash so that I can experiment doing some basic video editing.

       

      To test if the FLV file was ok, I chose 'Load external video with playback component'.  The video loads in and plays fine when I hit play.

       

      But when I try to 'Import FLV in SWF and play in timeline', it just embeds a black graphic.  When I click into the graphic, a new timeline opens with about 1000 frames, but the whole lot are just black.  This happens no matter if I import as an embedded video, movieclip, or graphic.

       

      Is there a trick to importing a video when you want to use Flash as a basic video editor?

       

      Thanks
