Posted on 2009-04-10

I want to scale a 728 by 90 Flash movie to 600 by 75, but since the animation is generated through ActionScript all the parameters offered by Flash crop the resized movie.

Is there a way to embed the full movie into a web page and have it be scale to the desired size above?

Thanks in advance for your help.

Look at a tool called Swffit http://swffit.millermedeiros.com/ - it resizes movies based on screen dimesions or a div size. Works great in scaling content.

Also (if you are using AS2 - similar commands in AS3) check out fscommand allowScale

This along with using Stage.scaleMode="exactFit" can possibly allow you what you want to do
