Encore output to Flash: It's a .swf? Or an .fla?
on Aug 27, 2007 at 12:16:28 am

I am looking at the new CS3 package. One of the key features is the Flash export. From what I've read, Encore outputs a .swf, not a .fla. So tweaking in Flash is not possible.

Also, on the Adobe site a user mentioned a problem with Motion Menu backgrounds from Encore showing as black in the Flash output file. I have a looming conversion project that has tons of Motion Menus, so it could be a show-stopper.

Does anyone know if the black backgrounds problem is design issue or bug or is there a workaround?

If a .fla comes out, I could regenerate the backgrounds. But if Encore generates a .swf, what you see is what you get.

Thanks much for any insights. It's a shame that Encore isn't part of the CS3 trial. So much would be answered...

Encore outputs a SWF file.

I myself have not seen motion menus exported to Flash display black, and I have done many.
