I started an animation in flash recently and the autosave feature was turned on. I had a good animation, but decided to play around with it a bit. After a little while, I decided to call it a night and exited the program making sure NOT to save my work. Upon opening that file the next time, I come to find out that Flash has autosaved my file while I was playing around. Now I have a worthless animation, and have to start from scratch. Is there any way to revert to a previous save, or autosave at this point, or am I about to do a lot of work again?
Thanks anyone who can help.
As far as I know, the autosave function isn't able to track down previous versions of the saved document - that calls for a specified version control system. I believe that Flash only saves the file if it is told to. There is a few ways to enable or disable autosave:
If these are checked of, there isn't going to happen any auto saving. The problem may be, that there is also a topic called Auto-Recovery. Recovery and Save isn't the same when it comes to Flash, but people tend to think of them as the same. You set the Auto-Recovery feature in the Preferences under General.
Both has a default of 10 minutes, and can therefore confuse he user. Please look at the document to make sure, that you haven't unset Auto-Recovery instead of Auto-Save. you can do that by:
The first one (in the preferences) is ok to have set. It is the second one, that may have caused trouble for you.
