weird problem with movie Jul. 24th, 2009 @ 09:11 PM Reply

Well I recently finished a new flash movie but theres one snag..
The scene before the last always freezes. the sounds will continue to play to the end but the animation always stops on the same graphic.
I can't figure out why it would do that.
I had to upgrade to cs4 just to get the movie to work because flash 8 kept freezing on export, but I don't think that has anything to do with it.

Not as familiar with cs4 so maybe theres something I've overlooked?

and no theres no stop commands or any actionscript in the scene so I dunno.
is there an object limit? and if so whats the max? maybe I have to much art in the movie? its pretty huge, with intense graphics, but the scene in question is pretty basic actually. so I'm totally clueless with this. No jpegs or anything is in the scene either. and I've tried that scene with no sound effects to with the same effect.

I've never encountered a problem like this one where the swf itself freezes.
If anyone has an idea as to how to fix it or anything I would appreciate it!

forgot to mention testing the said scene by itself, it works fine. but when playing the full movie it still freezes on that part.

Are you using multiple scenes? I suggest against using scenes; they're buggy and can cause lots of problems in your movie.

Frame cap, Object cap, layer cap and loaded external movie count is 16000 each. Seeing as you're telling us this is an epic, if you've got more than 16000 frames between all your scenes, that could explain it.

I have 1,819 objects, that's no where near 16,000. And I'm pretty sure it's not over 16,000 frames either.
Theres 20 scenes, would having that many bug it out?

Sure that it´s not over 16000 ?
Make sure to add all the frames in all your scenes together and when it´s over 16000 you know where the problem is. Even easier to find that out is testing your movie and checking at which frame it freezes.

Forthat case,here you go:

I made it when I found out how to do this. It´s not that great,but I hope it helps.

thats cool, but your tuturial doesnt explain what code to have it restart to the first scene again after the movie is over? I'm having a lot of trouble with this.
