main_movie.fla

(create_scene1.fla) (where I create my movie scenes - just to paste into scene1 - into an empty mc)

scene1.fla

 

In my main fla I am adding movieclips frame by frame.

Those multiple mcs are created in separate flas for greater control and use of camera zoom.

So in scene1.fla - I create an empty movieclip, then paste all the layers from fla1.

BUT it won't let me paste the camera layer. So all my camera zooms are lost.

 

How can I "paste together" lots of separate mcs without losing the specific camera zooms in each?

I am using HTML5 canvass not AS3 because I need to use this online in schools.

The only thing I have come across would be to manipulate the camera via code.

 

Inside each movieclip I could instantiate the camera and use the following

Find position (x,y) of the object I wish to zoom in on and then use

cameraObj.setPosition(x,y,z)

 

Something like that. Would that be the way to go?
