Problem embedding a large movie in Flash MX
Posted on 2002-05-22
I am have some difficulty embedding a somewhat long movie into a flash movie. I have a 14 minute movie that I would like to insert in a Flash page. The Flash page will be playing off of a local drive on a computer, so it will not have to stream over the Internet. Hence, file size should not be a problem. Anyway, I captured the movie in Premier and saved it as both a uncompresed AVI file and an uncompressed MOV file. When I try to import either of these files into a Flash project, it freezes up about 2/3 of the way through. I tried running the uncompressed movie though Sorenson SqueezeIt first, and then import the resulting .flc file into Flash. I have no problem importing the file into the Flash library, but when I try to insert the movie from the library to the stage, it again freezes up. I do
not think it is because there are too many frames in the movie. The total number of frames is approximately 10,000. I believe Flash can handle 16,000 frames...right? My computer is a 2.2 GHz Pentium 4 with 1024 Megs of RAM. I would think that should be enough to handle this movie too. I have done this
with shorter movies (about 5 minutes) without any problem. Any idea what the problem may be?
Thanks in advance,
