  • 3. Lock Fill & Close Gaps
    Hi , Have been trying to work out how the close gaps function works eg when drawing a shape obviously with a gap but the paintbucket will only fill the oval or square tool not the paintbrush or pencil. Am also confused as to the purpose of the lock fill and how these two function together. Thanks Pat
  • 4. Next flash version suggestion
    Hello, I'm Kenton. I love Flash, and have been using it ever since Flash 5, which was when I was old enough to know how to do things on computers. Anyways, to get to the point, I think a feature that Flash, as being an animation program is missing, are things like skeletons. You see these in almost every single 3D modelling / animation program. Basically, you create bones and joints, and put everyting together like a real skeleton would be connected. Then you attach an object to a bone somewhere, and by moving the bone, the object moves. The advantage to this, is you can create a character, then when you want the arm or hand to move, you just move it's bone, then the rest of the bones in the skeleton move as well so as to accomodate the movement naturally. Everything attached to bones moves too, making animating characters much more effecient, and overall better. Although these systems are usually set up in a 3D environment, I'm sure it wouldn't be hard to incorporate it into Flash's 2D environment, and would making animation so much easier and streamlined. I hope you consider this proposol seriously, as I believe it would make a great addition to the already great Flash. Sincerely, Kenton

Media slider for Media Playback component

I'm working with a .flv that is pretty short and will be used for doing a 360 view of an object; therefore, the time slider is being used a lot to control what angle is visible.  My problem is when I use the slider it only lets me view 2 or 3 different angles.  I'm wondering if there is a way to decrease the increment where it will advance the video.  If anyone knows, it would be a big help.

1.Media Components with MP3 - problems with playback slider in projectors

I am using the Media Components in Flash MX 2004 pro to play an MP3.  When testing the movie, or publishing to a .swf played in a browser, I can scrub on the slider as I should be able to.  However, if I create a projector (either Mac or PC) or use the standalone player, using the slider just causes the MP3 to start over from the beginning.  I am unable to scrub on it.

My standalone player is r.14.  The web player is r.19.  If this is causing the problem, is there a way to update the player within the projectors I am creating to r.19?

Thank you in advance.

4.Media Playback Component Problem

I am trying to put in a playlist into my component. I've looked into the 
Component inspector and I've put in the URL to my playlist that i want to play 
on the component but it is not working... I tried to put in actionscript to see 
if that could work, heres what i tried... i am really confused on this and any 
help on this i would greatly appreciate.

 onClipEvent (mouseMove) {

 splay.autoPlay = true;
 display.activePlayControl = true;
 display.controllerPolicy = "on";
 var myListener = new Object ();
 myListener.complete = function (eventObject)
 	trace ("media is Finished");
 display.addEventListener ("complete", myListener);
 display.setMedia ("Keep it Crunk.mp3", "MP3");

5.Passing variables to Media Playback Component

I'm developing a website using ColdFusion that needs to display a video chosen 
by the user.  I am very inexperienced in Flash, but I thought I would create a 
little Flash file using the Media Playback Component to play an external FLV 
file.  The problem is that the site uses hundreds of videos and I'd rather not 
create hundreds of SWF files in order to play each one of them back.

 Is there a way I could pass a variable to the movie to control what external 
.FLV file is loaded and played?

 Also, is it possible to pass a list of videos that would play in order?  (For 
example, could I pass a link to an intro file, then the main content file, 
followed by a closing file?)

 Thanks in advance!  :)
