PUBLISH SETTINGS

PUBLISH SETTINGS

File→Publish Settings opens the Publish Settings dialog box. This dialog box is used to specify all the files and settings that should be created. The Formats tab displays a number of check boxes and file types that can be produced, as well as text boxes where they can be given specific names (see Figure A–8).

The Flash tab controls Flash settings. Load Order is the order in which the layers of the movie are loaded. Generate size report produces a text file with information on all the pieces of the final Flash movie and their sizes. This is useful for figuring out how to optimize the movie. Protect from import keeps the movie file from being downloadable by viewers. The JPEG Quality slider controls the amount of compression Flash uses on any imported images. Audio Stream and Audio Event Set buttons are used to change the streaming and event compressions used. Finally, the Version drop-down is used to specify which version of Flash to create. If Flash 3 is used, any Flash 4 features in the movie will not function (see Figure A–9).

The HTML tab controls how Flash creates HTML files. The Template drop-down contains a variety of precreated HTML templates into which Flash can embed the movie. The Dimensions setting specifies the size at which the movie will be displayed. Setting this to Percent will cause the movie to scale to fit the browser. The other options control how the movie will display, where on the page it will reside, and what menu options will be available to the viewer who right-clicks (PC) or Ctrl-clicks (Mac) on the movie (see Figure A–10).
