Hi everyone,
i have a school project to do, and it will contain several video clips ranging from 1 to 3 minutes in length. i would like to make the whole thing in flash BUT whenever i try and import a video, the video ends up taking hundreds of frames, which not only makes things extremely confusing for me, but it also makes my life a lot harder. Is there a way to make a video clip take only one frame? perhaps putting the video in its own file, exporting that to a .swf then importing/embeding that swf in my project, and thus making the video take up less than 1 frame. if this is how you do it, please could someone tell me how to do this. or if this is not how you do it, can someone please tell me how?


thanks in advance

Make an empty movieclip and import it into the movieclip. Now you can attach the movie clip to the stage and it will only occupy one frame. If you need any more Flash Cs3 help or guidance I will be happy to help :D

I dont think there is a best format, try using several different movie clip formats like .Avi and see which one you prefer.
