Subject: FLASH: Flash Crashing
From: Adam Rodriguez
Date: Thu, 31 Aug 2000 20:56:49 +0100

;I had the same problem with a file on my mac, and that was the beggining of some very disturbing problems using this program.
I'm new to flash, so I dont really know what happened with me, but I think that it is related to my proccesor or my graphics card.
Now I get frequent crashes whenever I attempt to test a sound in the properties dialouge box, amd the main animation is still playing in the background. This should not happen, and at a minimum it should only stop the animation and sound in the main timeline(or any timeline for that matter) and after testing the sound it should resume playing at normal frame rate. I wish that macromedia would cleary list system requirements if a file that is only 755KB has trouble playing! Sorry I can't really help you
all I can tell you is that I spent a weekend creating this file only to have it become corrupted and unable to use. What a waste of time. This program is definitely buggy.

Funny you should ask. I just now clicked SEND on the following, to another
Flash users' list:

Having seen a few mentions of Swift3D here, I must tell you that I was very
disappointed with the product. I found it only useful for the simplest logo
animations, and even for those, there is little one can do to alter a
timeline of moves once they're made--simpler to start from scratch. And
forget about characters walking, or anything that has moving parts. S3D is
a spinning logo creator.

At the Macromedia booth at SIGGRAPH, I saw a great demo about importing 3D
into Flash 5, and we were shown 3DS MAX-compatible software that was to be
distributed free, for the sake of content creation in the Flash platform.
There were plenty of competitors offering similar web experiences of 3D
objects, but the Macromedia solution looked best, for users of MAX, anyway.
Now that you've mentioned it, I'm going to check out Macro's web site for
information.

If you haven't heard of this, hang on and keep an eye out before you spring
for plugins and software to get 3D into Flash. The demo we were shown was
simple, with crease-free workflow and excellent 3D results. I'd rather have
that than the kludgy experience of Swift3D, I'm sorry to say.

S3D is version 1, still, so I suppose they may well pull it out of the fire
with improvements to the next version. I find it
a very weak package, not suited to animators.

PS: Chris, to this I'd add that it's not worth $100 to me. It's a crude
tool, lacking in basic and useful 3D tools. It is obviously meant for no
more than spinning logos.

Hello,

I am having problems on Netscape Navigator (both PC and Mac) using the
"Variables: Send using POST" on a "Get URL()" command. Is working without
problems if I use "Variables: Send using GET". Both methods works without
problems in MS Internet Explorer.

I prefer the POST method because the URL is cleaner...

Any clue?

Subject: FLASH: Radio Combo buttons

Hey,

Got a dilemma with radio buttons.

Thirteen buttons in a row and only one needs to be selected at a time.
Buttons is stored in mc (actually just one duplicated 12 times) and mc is
labeled appropriately with "up" and "down" frame stops.

I'm working with a looping action, but I believe this recipe doesn't
necessarily work properly with my condition:

On (Press)
Set Variable: "Counter" = 0
Loop While (Counter<1)
Begin Tell Target ("radio"&counter)
Go to and Stop ("radio stop")
End Tell Target
Set Variable: "Counter" = counter+1
End Loop
End On

It's better than when I was just telling targets...but none can be selected
for more than the duration of the mouse press.

Any ideas for something simpler. I'm having a major brain fart this morning
and can't wrap my mind around this.

hi guys, I've been using this code successfully:

on (release) {
myColor = new Color(square1);
myColor.setRGB( 0x9CFFCE );
}

but what I want to do now is set the colour according to an expression (say
the value of the variable paint) but flash doesn't seem to like me doing
this (says it wants the color specified as a hex value). Any ideas?

TIA

I am not sure if anyone has answered this yet, but I can tell you what I do
anyway.

the action for my radio buttons look something like this.

on (release)
set variable "../:this" = _name
set variable "../:action" = "radioClick" <- this is for if there is more
then one action possible in the timeline holding the mc
tell target ("../")
Call ("action")
end tell target

in the frame "action" it goes soemthing like this

if action eq "radioClick"
Set Variable: "Counter" = 0
Loop While (Counter<1)
if this ne "radio"&counter

Begin Tell Target ("radio"&counter)
Go to and Stop ("radio stop")
End Tell Target
end if
Set Variable: "Counter" = counter+1
End Loop
end if

basically it tells the action to look to see if the radioButton it is
currently changing is in fact the one that was clicked...

i think this may answer your Q?

David,

Have you tried the other "usual routines" to fix it? Like opening the FLA and
doing a Save As and seeing if the new file works? Or how about creating a fresh
new FLA and pasting everything into it? These might work. If not, maybe look
toward system fixes: zap your PRAM, rebuild your desktop, etc.

Good luck!

Hi everyone,

Where can I find high quality, royalty free music loops that don't all sound
like the usual techno drumbeat sh*t?

Specifically, I would like to find a slow piano, ballad-like tune, but I'm
also interested to see if anybody has found any good resources in general
for music loops (or sound effects).
I don't mind paying out for a CD or downloads, as long as I know that I will
be getting a good variety of sounds/genres. (Preferably in aif format).

Thanks in advance,

Hi all,

I have some sites made in Flash v4, that use Tell Target.

I use mosto for positioning, where i load a movie into a location and into a
new level (_level1 for example), them i use set property to place it and
resize it as needed.

I noticed that since the V5 plugin for Internet Explorer (the browser i only
have) it doesn't work anymore, the movie loads, but set property won't work.

I went back to v4 plugin and everything is ok.
Is there a work-around for this, or is this a v5 bug?
