i have created a movieclip with a tweening of a heart.
Now i use this mc five times on the main stage.
I can't see the animation on the stage if I hit enter.
If I 'test in browser' everything is fine.
I'm also not able to 'export as gif'. The gif does not have any animation.
If I export the file as a mpeg4 everything ist fine.
What do I do wrong?
I am glad about any help.

you probably have animation that's not on the main timeline and not in a graphic symbol timeline that's on the main timeline. eg, your animation is on the heart movieclip timeline.
thank you so much.
You are right: In order to view animations on the main timeline from another "MOVIECLIP" you have to convert it to a graphic symbol. This works as long as you don't need any scripting on the object.
p.s. you can script graphic symbols.
as far as i remember, that used to be a problem but was still doable using getChild(), getChildAt(). but now you can assign an instance name of graphic objects and reference them just like movieclips.
