Troubleshooting Communications Between Flash and Director

  • The Flash 4 Asset Xtra can import SWF files exported as Flash 5 files, but it will ignore ActionScript it can't understand. Additionally, it can't use shared libraries or other new features of Flash 5.

  • Despite what it says in the documentation, the FSCommand action is not a reliable method of passing data from Flash to Director. Use GetURL as outlined in this chapter.

  • The first version of the Flash 4 Asset Xtra (shipped with Director 7.0.2) can access variables only at the root timeline level of Flash sprites. Other features that are unsupported in that version are loaded variables and movies.
