Mac / Mmmmmmmmmmmm Mac!
« on: June 07, 2007, 01:45:05 PM »
Oh I love my Mac. I have an old G4 laptop which has worked day and night for me since 2002. It has worked on films, albums and also used to run my bussiness. I have been looking around for a new Mac for my studio as it was getting close toretirement for such a workhorse.  At this point the logical upgrade to handle the grunt would be a new Mac Pro. As a matter of urgency I needed a new computer... fast. So I looked online, and then rang the Apple store here in Wagga Wagga. Within an hour I had possession of the new 20" iMac. Up until last weekend I was an iMac snob and thought that these computeres were only good for receptionists... OH HOW I WAS WRONG!!! This beast ROCKS!!! The thing I love about my Mac's is the fact that they just work.

Animate (Flash) / Movie and Graphic symbols
« on: May 03, 2007, 10:34:10 AM »
I had someone call this morning with a problem resulting from not being able to see there "movie symbol"...

When you have a graphic symbol (a graphic symbol can be more than 1 frame), the symbol plays as long as your animation (timeline dependant). ie If you create a 100 frame graphic symbol and your animation is only 80 frames, only 80 frames of your symbol will play.

If on the other hand you use a movie symbol, the movie symbol will play it's entirety. So a 100 frame movie symbol will play for 100 frames in a 80 frame animation. This is unless the movie has been scripted to only run for the duration of the animation or has other parameters set.

As a result of the movie symbol being independent of the animation... to preview your movie symbol properly you will need to do a test movie- and not just play from the timeline.
