Not sure what happened...

…but something’s gotten screwed up really bad w/ both my import AND export settings in Flash (running Flash MX Pro 2004). I was in the process of importing a .MOV movie (created in Sony Vegas Movie Studio (v8.0), to be exported as a .SWF (out of Flash…to be published to the web, in order to be displayed on our band's MySpace site).

I know my .MOV export out of Sony Vegas is OK, 'cause I can preview it in QuickTime; & it plays & looks great. But when I import it into Flash, I know something is wrong right away, 'cause the display window reads: "current selection cannot have actions applied to it". And when I hit the Play button...all that can be seen is a solid white screen...there's no content, no transitions...no nothing. If I go ahead & export as a .swf, all that get’s exported is a white screen…no movie.

What have I done wrong?



BTW - The movie I'm working w/ is a dynamic photo montage, where I placed photographs of the band side by side by side; & then added transitions between the still images. The only reason I went back to redo the montage because it was too large in file size; which prohibits the loading of tables on our MySpace page, until the movie fully streams. I was looking for a way to decrease the file size coming out of Vegas; & then this happened. But...like I said...the .MOV out of Vegas plays & looks just fine.

I don't know what's wrong, but I'm having the same problem! I just came onto this site to find out why that's happening to me. Hopefully someone knows why.

My file was the original .fla and I previewed it successfully one minute and the next minute Flash said it couldn't find the file. I'm losing my mind! I've noticed other bugs and frequent crashes. Does this happen to everyone?
