getting a high quality animated gif isn't always possible using flash. your success will depend on the graphics you're using with problems likely to occur if you use gradients.
to publish an animate gif, all the animation should be on the main timeline. you may be able to use graphic symbols on the main timeline and successfully publish that. test it to see.
Hi thanks for the response. What do you mean by insert the symbols into the main timeline? manually copy and pasting the timeline from the independant symbols into the main scene timeline?
again, putting movieclip symbols on the main timeline will display the first frame of the movieclip in your animated gif. you won't see the movieclip's other frames. ie, the movieclip won't appear to animate.
you may be able to place an animated graphic on the main timeline, publish your gif and you may see your graphic's animation. try it and see.
otherwise, all your tweens/animations will need to be on the main timeline with no nested animations.
