View Full Version : Exporting/Importing Scenes

Im a little stuck, I have a bunch of presentations that need to be put into one. Is there a way to export a scene, then import that scene into a master FLA?
Flash can't export individual scenes. One way to achieve this would be to copy all the frames of the scene you want to import and paste them into another .fla file. Another method might be to copy all of the frames of the scene you want to use and turn it into a movieclip. You can then add the movieclip to any library.
With that said, using scenes in flash is a bad practice in my opinion. Scenes are notorious for dropping variable values and make overall editing much more difficult. The real power of flash rests in the movieclip object. A movieclip is essentially a self contained scene. There is nothing that can be put in a scene that can't be contained by a movieclip. Using a single scene with movieclips acting as "scenes" makes editing much eaiser than having to switch back and forth between scenes to edit content.
