Ghost images flickering in top left corner

I have been having this issue for awhile and now people are getting annoyed with it :)

In my movie, under a certain marker I have a flash object playing that takes up the entire screen (800x600). When I play my movie on the kiosk, you see 2 member objects (which are not part of that frame) flicker in the top left corner of the screen, one layered on top of the other with their regpoint centered at 0,0 (movie runs at 5fps, so I think the flicker coincides with that). In authoring mode, I do not see the flicker, but if I stop the movie on that marker the 2 objects appear. They are not touchable. When I move the flash object they disappear. My movie does move around in the Z-axis of other windows on screen (goes back and forth to show another window unrelated to my director movie). I read somewhere online this may have something to do with it, but I have no idea.

Anyone ever see this before and know any kind of fix? Thanks.

Eric

What type are these memebers?  Some sprites like Quicktime and Flash can "fight" with each other and cause flickering.

You can also adjust the locz of the flash sprite so that it shows above all other sprites, then set it back when you leave the frame.

Other than that it would be hard to diagnose without an example.

The 2 members that appear are png files.  The fact si those 2 sprites are not even in that frame, they end about 10 frames previously. The only object in the frame at that time is the flash object.  Ill see if I can create a simple example out of this next week and I will post it somewhere.

Are you puppeting the sprites or were they in the previous frame?

Just in the previous frame. They appear, but are not selectable, not really there...

Make sure to puppet them off.  Puppeted sprites will persist until removed. Avoud them when ever possible.  Also you might want to try a blank frame (or an image of the first frame of the flash movie) between them.

I'm not sure what you mean... I didn't puppet them (or did I). They were just placed on the stage in a previous frame and at the beginning of the movie I set their filenames.

I'm not sure if it worked. In authoring mode the ghost image still appears when I stop the movie. As a projector it looks fine on my home computer, but I will check it out Monday at work on the kiosk. Thanks.

I'm going to have to revisit this at a later time, but want to give you the points for helping. Thanks.
