Hi!

I have various issue with Flash CS5 and AE CS5 in MAC OS X 10.8. 2

We have an animation in flash that we want to take to AE: We have tried these options:
1. Exporting PNG sequence. It exports the total of frames (153) but not correctly. It misses some or recreates others.
2. Exporting a QT movie. Sometimes works and sometimes changes the total duration of the clip, form 5 seconds to 8....
3. So we though of exporting a SWF file to take it to AE. This SWF is viewed correctly in Chrome and firefox. Though, when we import to AE, it only reads the first 2 frames and ignores the rest of the 153 frames.
It does read correctly the HD reslution, and frame rate, but doesnt read the whole file.
I have read here to deselect the XMP files option in AE. Done it and still doesn't work.

┬┐Any solutions to the SWF issue? and how to make flash export correctly all the PNG FRAMES.


Thanks in advance.
Nadia.

From After Effects Help:

"Note: SWF files are imported with an alpha channel. Audio is not retained. Interactive content and scripted animation are not retained. Animation defined by keyframes in the main, top-level movie is retained."
