I recently have been asked to do some work for a client, and I needed to send him a demo. But when I tried to export it to a MOV. format, it opened up on my computer, but not on his.
I'm using Flash MX 2002 on a Mac PowerBook G4 running 10.4.11.
I can animate just fine on it, but it's just that when I try to export thats what happens. I have a converter on my computer, and I put the MOV. file in it and converted it to a MP4, but there was a huge quality loss.
I need to get this out to him quickly and urgently (he also wants me to do a minute long animation (like the eBay bucks style promo video) for only $50. And he wants it to look professional. I only dabble in Flash, but I've gotten the hang of it and can do pretty good stuff in my mind. But is it worth it for only $50?).
I don't know what to do as I called Adobe and they said they no longer support my edition of Flash, and to post on here.
If you can't open a MOV file on his machine, that implies that he doesn't have QuickTime installed. it can be installed from http://support.apple.com/kb/index?page=search&src=support_site.results.disambiguation&q=Do wnload%20QuickTime%207.7%20for%20Windows
I forgot to mention that I uploaded the MOV. file to Gmail and sent it to myself to see if it would work (I have QuickTime along with my other Macs), but it came up with something like "this file is not a movie file" or some dumb thing like that. Thanks for the tip though, I appreciate it, but I'm still stuck.
Try stuffing the movie before you post it. Older mac file formats can store things in the resource fork which gets stripped when run through windows or linux.
