How would i go about resizing a flash file once it has already been saved? I have the source file, i just need to go back and resize the movie and all objects within it. I am not talking about resizing the stage i know how to do that... need to make the flash movie its self larger.

using flash MX 2004

do you have any bitmap images in your movie?

If not, i would suggesst resizing it in the html, as its will scale up smoothly.

Alternatively, you could try right clicking in the timeline (i think) and selecting all frames, and then seeing if you can scale them up manually. youll also have to resize the stage to fit, obviously

Hey, you could try to use the "Edit Multiple Frames" button. It is on the timeline and is the the forth button to the left of the trash can icon. It looks like 2 folders overlapping eachother. Click on it then you will see two brackets appear on the top of the timeline were the frame counter is. It will have circular handles on both little brackets and there will be red between the two. If all your layers are unlocked you can grab the left bracket and put it on frame 1 and then grab the right bracket and drag it to the last frame then it will select all the objects in all the frames, and you can use the free transform tool to resize all the objects in one smooth motion. From that point resize the canvas, and then turn off edit multiple frames and voula. Or you could just resize the whole movie in html. It pretty much comes down to preferense. Good luck
