Export to Video/Media...

Hello All,

I am trying to export my AS3 movie in Animate to an MP4 video via the File>Export>Export to Video/Media link. I have the settings at Format: MPEG4 and Preset: Default (AME). Via other threads I have AME Renderer set to: Mercury Playback Engine Software Only.

 

About my .FLA

I have 1 scene with 10 frames, each frame has a MovieClip and the top layer has stop(); on each frame. Within each MovieClip, the last frame as AS3 telling the playhead to move to the parent scene, next frame (e.g., MovieClip(parent).gotoAndPlay(2);) There are audio files playing in each MC as well. The total length of the .FLA when saved as a .SWF or an .EXE is about 35mins and works great.

 

When I try to export to an MPEG 4 however, I end up getting a 5 second MP4 video with a static image of my .FLA background and I don't get any errors in the compiler.  I have tried a few different things such as exporting to Quicktime, etc. but the exports are only 5 seconds long.

 

Any help would greatly be appreciated!

Thanks,

Shannon

movieclips don't play in videos.  convert each to a graphic symbol.

So, I just want to make sure I am understanding. Do you want me to convert each movieclip to a graphic symbol in the library or should I change the symbol type under the Object tab under properties, or both? If I change the movieclips under the Object tab to be graphics, then no animation will occur that is in the movieclip, correct? Which, is obviously not what I want.

So that is not working. I converted all the movieclips to graphics in the properties panel and published it and exported it to an MPEG4. The SWF and WinExe was just frame 1 (no animation) of my movie and the MPEG4 file was only 5 seconds long again showing my background image.  Any other ideas?

Ah so AS3 is also ignored when exporting to video. Okay so I made the symbols long enough so that the graphics would play out, but saw that it was going to blow the 16000 frame limit out of the water. So I broke out each movieclip as its own movie, then stitched everything together in Premiere. Thank you for your help as always!
