Importing Quicktime into Flash - like how its done on interactive CDs
Posted on 2001-08-16
I would like to be able to use Quicktime files on in Flash like what one sees in interactive CDs that have Quicktime and Flash. So I've tried to do that by reading the flash 4 manual, but:
I'm confused about importing quicktime into flash. Can you import a quicktime file to be used in a flash
swf or projector file?
I've read the flash 4 manual about adding the number of frames of the quicktime movie to the scene to
be able to play the quicktime movie and that flash only makes a pointer to the quicktime file rather
than embedding it. I can play the movie in flash (although there is no sound, why?) but nothing shows
up when I publish it as a swf or projector file. Is there something I forgot to do or did wrong?
To be more clear, I have imported the quicktime file into flash 4. It shows up as an object that can be resized, etc. However, nothing shows up when I publish the file (it's blank)
even though I have the right amount of frames in the flash file.
