I tried to export, but every time I do, I just get an error of "Cannot export to (name).mov", and even if im using a preset that exports to MP4 (ect.) I get the same error, and if I export to a file that exists, it just creates a file with no data.
There is a good chance the two are related. You need to get to the point where a Test Movie produces and runs a SWF version of the animation, before it would be possible to export to video. The usual cause for problems is the folder that you are using. Make sure you have saved the FLA somewhere that you have permissions to write too, then test movie and see if the SWF gets made into the same folder.
