Hello, great site!
I'm new to Flash and need advise on why a placed image (jpg or bmp can't remember) with a fading motion tween seems to shift unexpectedly 1 pixel. I noticed this shift on numerous other portions of my movie and was able to fix them by zooming in really closly and adjusting them, while in the authoring preview mode. However, I can't see this shift like I saw the others. I'm going through each individual frame at various magnification levels and can't see the shift. However, once I publish the movie the shift is apparent, not while in the authoring preview pane.

To make things even more interesting: one friend sees the problem while another doesn't. Any thoughts?
Thanks

This is a fun one. This is what I do to correct it. After you import the graphic break it apart. Control B. Then convert it to a symbol(graphic). This should do it. Flash has problems with things it doesn't get to convert in some way. Let me know if this fixes it.

Good idea korkus.... BUT

If its a complex looking photo, breaking it apart wil diminish the look a bit, and slow down the movie big time, provided its a fancy lookin photo.

Just importing, then changing the jpeg to a symbol before you do any tweening should do it. A lot of times if you try to do a simple tween with out converting to symbol first it messes up the frames that it draw in between the 2 keyframes.

BTW, i finally finished my crappy flash intro. 45 second intro in less than 2 days! mouhahaha

I may have skipped the first question kingkelly. ;) Is your picture a symbol already? If not, yes try it as a symbol. Sometimes you will still get the shift as a symbol. The only way I have found around that is breaking it apart. Yes it can degrade the quality and speed, but there is some tweeking that can help prevent it.

Glad to hear you finished the job in time. :)

I found this a while back to (its a bug in macromedia flash player).

I found that shrinking the image by a very little bit clears it up fine :)

Here's macromedia's report on this problem
