I've very recently started using Flash 4
and have just been commisioned to produce several virtual postcard animations, working to a maximum size of 480w x 360h pixels. That's fine, the file size must not exceed 80k, uncompressed.
This is my problem, as when I've produced a very, very simple animation with out sound or bitmaps and publish it as a .swf file it exceeds 80k.
If I select the icon on the desktop and get info on it, it says the file size is 306K, yet if i publish a report on it, it say it's 68bytes. And if I email it, outlook express gives a file size of about 70k.
I don't understand what's going on, and how can I animate anything that won't exceed 80k.
I'm sure there's a simple explanation.
Hope someone can help!
