Chapter 10. Captivate & Macromedia Flash... > Importing a Captivate Movie to Flash...

Importing a Captivate Movie to Flash MX 2004

When performing the import, you may be wondering why you were asked to create the FLA file and then import the Captivate file into Flash. It would seem to make sense to simply open the FLA file. The reason is the inclusion of full motion captures. When the FLA is created, full motion captures are converted to external SWF files, and the links to those files are embedded into the FLA created by Captivate. These links are relative links because files get moved around. If the links were absolute, they would break. Relative links actually make the file portable.

To import a Captivate movie into Flash MX 2004

1.
Save the Captivate movie and quit Captivate.

2.
Launch Flash MX 2004 or Flash MX Professional 2004.

3.
On the Flash start page, select Create New > Flash Document.

4.
When the new document opens, select File > Import > “Import to stage.”

The Import dialog box opens.

5.
Navigate to the folder containing the Captivate CP file, select the file, and click Open.

Flash starts to import the file.
