If I change the color of an instance on the main timeline it works perfect in html5.

If I change the color of an instance on the timeline of a movieclip, which is not on the main timeline - then it does not work anymore.

does anybody know why? and what I can do, that it works again?

thanks for a hinch

i've had the previous versions and never encountered that, and i've not seen anyone else report that issue.  my guess is a clean install of that same version would have fixed the problem, too.

 

but there's not need to test that.  all's well that ends well.

its an instance of a grafic symbol in the timeline of a moviclip which is on the main timeline.

it seems as if the color would be transported by click

first picture ist how it looks in the fla - second picture is how it looks when it is published in the browser...

definitively not the same an i wonder why

when that movieclip (zeitleiste) is on frame 3 (4th frame), that graphic should be orange.  but i don't see anyway to get the movieclip to stay on frame 4 and evaluate the graphic color unless there's code somewhere.  eg,

 

on main timeline:

 

this.Zeitleiste_instance_name.gotoAndStop(3);

 

on zeitleiste timeline,

 

this.gotoAndStop(3);

this almost certainly user error, but i can't determine what that error is without downloading and checking your fla.

i don't see anything mysterious.  it works just like you would expect (except when getting to the end of this.swf's timeline, it restarts.)  i didn't expect that.

 

here's the start before anything is clicked:

 

kglad_0-1634229137628.png

 

after clicking once:

 

kglad_1-1634229166588.png

 

after clicking again:

 

kglad_2-1634229201146.png

 

clicking again:

 

kglad_3-1634229231396.png

 

and again:

kglad_4-1634229260259.png

 

which looks just like frames 0,1,2,3,4 on this.swf's timelne.

yes - otherwise, i guess, i would't see anything at all

i checked it with command about:config and javascript.enabled - it's on true

so the problem is not the browser (i also tried safari and chrome - same problem) the problem must be in the fla while publishing - it writes a javascript - i think the problem could be here? but i have no idea, how this javascript is generated and how i could affect it to do some funny things...

i work with big sur version 11.5.2 and with animate cc 2021 - maybe this is the difference. but i rather guess the problem is to find in the javascript-file which is created by animate. unfortunately it is not possible to send a javascript-file - i puted it on the same link as the fla-file is placed, togehter with a html with the same name. there you can find it and could have a look at it, if it is different to yours? or does that make no sence?

you can influence the js file (indirectly) with the publish settings.  i don't know how you could pick settings that would cause the problem you saw, but i could do some testing. 

 

to start, now i'm wondering if i use your js file will i see the same problem you reported.

 

in the meantime, you should create a nee folder and save your fla to that foldet.  then test.

i guess you will have the same result as me, if you test it with my javascript, because they are really different.

i already did create a new folder, saved the fla in there and tested - same result...

here are my publish settings concerning the creating of the javascript
