Chapter 19. Loading Visual Content > Loading SWF Files into Flash

Loading SWF Files into Flash

The methods used to load images into Flash can also be used to load other Flash-created SWF files. In fact, this is more powerful than loading simple images into Flash because loading other Flash content can help teams of designers and developers to work together more easily. It can allow custom interfaces to be used based on individual tastes. It can even allow objects in the parent timeline to interact with objects in the loaded timeline.

There are a couple of things to consider when loading external Flash content into another Flash movie. First is the frame rate. When Flash content is completely loaded into a new Flash movie, it takes on the root timeline's frame rate whether it's faster or slower than its own, so timing of animations may be off if the two movies are on different frame rates in their individual form.
