Oh - AND I then place images on a new layer (no, not a guide layer) and they don't appear at all in the .swf. Sigh*
Does this happen to just that one file or all of your files? Are you on Mac or PC?
Flash Pro, QE
It happens inconsistently, I can't seem to isolate a common trait with the
files that play up. Once it was particularly bad with a file that used some
vector images imported from Illustator, and I thought that was the cause.
But my current project is purely designed in flash and is giving me trouble
I also feel that sometimes if I have After Effects open at the same time,
it becomes more frequent. My computer is more than adequately set up to run
both at the same time though.
I use a PC.
It sounds like a memory issue. How much memory do you have on your PC? How big is your flash file?
Most recent problematic Flash file is 21.9mb. On a previous project the
problematic file was 2.43mb. There have been times when AE is not open and
weird things still happen. I have attached a screen shot of my computer
I don't see your attachment. Can you please insert the image into your post directly?
One thing we can try is to reset and recreate your preferences.
1. Delete your user configuration folder that's located in:
- Window XP - C:\Documents and Settings\<username>\Local Settings\Application Data\Adobe\Flash<version>
- Window Vista & Window 7- C:\Users\<username>[AppData]\Local\Adobe\Flash<version>
2. Recreate your preferences: http://kb2.adobe.com/cps/520/cpsid_52048.html
This is my most recent problem - and I find it happens fairly regularly:
Exception thrown in destructor
Encountered an improper argument
When it happened, I was editing an abject with the White Arrow tool (A). I need to close Flash and restart to get things running normally.
Are you saving and working from a thumb drive? Do you see this issue when working locally using your C drive?
I don't work from external devices, no. All on the C drive.
A developer on our team looked into that path and it looks like our call to Microsoft code is failing. I've also search online and several other non Adobe products are seeing this, too. Can you send me steps to reproduce this issue? We need to get this to happen on our end and work with Microsoft to get this fix.
