I'm an AE person really - I don't use Flash. But I've been given a .fla file with an animation I need to extract to some kind of recognisable movie format (avi, mov or whatever) to include in an AE piece. I've tried exporting it as a movie, but all I get is the first frame. It seems that the actual animation is included in some kind of embedded code? - here's a screenshot:
So I've gone into the "Animation group" folder and opened the "main clip" and this is what I've got. It plays fine, but exporting it I just get the first frame; I can't figure out how to end up with the whole animation. Help!
i) Select all the layers ( not the frames and make sure it all frames are also selected while selecting the layer)
ii) Press Ctrl+Alt+C to copy all the frames
iii) open a new file and create a movieclip if you need
iv) click on layer to select the layer
v) Press Ctrl+Alt+V to paste all the layers with the frames
Brilliant. That's it! Thanks
