Professional :: Ecard Suggested Stage Size - What Optimal Pixel Dimensions Would Be For Ecards To Run On Multiple Platforms

Feb 15, 2011

I have one that's almost done and the stage size is 700x800 px. But I'm starting to worry if that's going to look too small? To change it, will be a lot of work - there's animation, imported Jpegs etc. As far as I can tell, in order for it to look correct in larger dimensions I will need to basically create it again from the ground up. So, I'd really like to get an idea of what the optimal pixel dimensions would be for ecards to run on multiple platforms.

I really want to do this and I don't feel like I can move ahead until I get the viewing size correct. I don't even mind redoing the card. I just want my future cards to be the correct size. I don't want to have to come back and redo them all. By the way, the cards are being made in Flash. The site itself will be created in DreamWeaver.

ActionScript 3.0 :: Setting External SWF Dimensions To Root Stage Size?

May 15, 2009

I am loading the SWF just fine, but I want the SWF to fit the root stage exactly. What happens instead is that the external SWF seems to include white space from around itself.

For example, the author-set width of the Tanks game (an example file I was using) is 550px, but when I set the width of loadEvent.currentTarget.content.width to 550px, the game is resized to maybe 350px width. I have to set the value of loadEvent.currentTarget.content.width to something like 640 in order to get the game itself to make full use of those 550 pixels.

package {
import flash.display.Loader;


I have CS4 with AS3. I hard-coded values for cWidth and cHeight instead of getting them from flashvars because I am just testing in the IDE right now. Normally I would get those vars from flashvars.

Professional :: Change The Pixel Size To Anamorphic?

May 23, 2010

I'm trying to create a credits screen for a movie that's 1440x1080, anamorphic. Flash CS5, on the other hand, only allows square pixels, which throws off the pictures/text when I put it into Premiere Pro CS5. So, is there any way to change the pixels from square, to 1.33?

Flash :: Professional - Template In CS4 - Changing The Pixel Size

Feb 10, 2010

I am new to Flash and was trying to start a website for my photography business. I have an up and running version of Flash Pro CS4 with all updates. I purchased a full flash template from [URL] hoping to just open the .fla file and go to work editing. No such luck. When I click on the main.fla file, all the components seem to load in the library, however in the timeline, I only show like 9 random layers. When I run the timeline, all I get is a bunch of lines, squares, etc running on and off the stage. When I click "publish" the layers and components run fine with all the default content. The template came in a ZIP file and after extracting, I get the usual files, .fla, .html, .XML, .SWA, etc. All the components seem to be in the .fla file. What am I missing? I know there should be more layers in the timeline, but I cant find them. My troubleshooting has been to confirm that the template is good with CS4 and ActionScript 3.0. I've tried different settings to include changing the pixel size, but nothing.

ActionScript 3.0 :: Get SWF Pixel Dimensions?

May 19, 2010

How do I programatically get the pixel dimensions of my SWF. I tried using stage.width and stage.height, but this seems to be a tight bounding box on all the objects in the video, not the actual viewing area. I also want these pixel dimensions to be accurate as javascript dynamically resizes this SWF.

Professional :: Why Is Stage Larger Than .fla Dimensions

May 12, 2010

The more I work with this program, the more weird stuff I encounter.  I set up my .fla file as 700 x 400.  I've been putting stuff on the stage and adding tweens, then when I test the movie, part of the stage image is cut off.  I turned on the ruler, and found that the top of my stage is aligned at X 0.00 and Y -44.50.  I drew a box the size of the entire stage, and its position is X 0.00 and Y -44.50, and the dimensions are 700 x 469.  Can anyone tell me why my stage is larger than 700 x 400, and how to get the top left corner of the stage to be aligned at X 0.00 and Y 0.00?

ActionScript 3.0 :: Determine Point Size For A Font That Matches Specified Pixel Size?

Aug 22, 2009

I have a list of fonts obtained via Font.enumerateFonts() and I want to display them all as 12 pixels tall. The problem is that I cannot simply set the point size because this can vary in actual pixel size for each font. So basically I want to determine what the correct point size is for a font in order to make it exactly 12 pixels tall. Because I'm doing this with a potentially large list I'm looking for an efficient method to do this.

ActionScript 3.0 :: Get An Object To Increase In Size The Lower It Goes Down The Stage And Decrease In Size The High It Moves Up The Stage?

Dec 29, 2009

I'm trying to get an object to increase in size the lower it goes down the stage, and decrease in size the high it moves up the stage.

It only needs to increase or decrease by a small amount. Basically, it's for a game character. To ad realism to his movements, it would be nice to have this feature.

This is where i'm up to so far:

import fl.transitions.Tween;
import fl.transitions.TweenEvent;
import fl.transitions.easing.*;


I think I need something like:

if (object moves up)
else if (object moves down)

Professional :: Stage Size For A Flash Website?

Jul 12, 2010

I am taking a beginners Flash course and our final project is to create a movie/website in Flash. 100% Flash based. In a previous course, I made an HTML site. For this project, I am recreating that website in Flash. But what should the stage size be? That is where I am stuck. I don't know what a normal Flash site size should be to fit the screen like a normal HTML site.I already know to havethe dimentions set to 100% and 100%. But for some reason, when I use Control > Test movie, it never seems to fit right. It's either crunched together to much or spread out to far to where the header and footer are partially off the screen. I've seen posts on the web from years ago that said 950x550 is the size needed. Is that still the case? Because it just doesn't look right. With HTML the page height would adjust to the content and it would automatically scroll if needed. But Flash doesn't seem to do that. It seems that you are stuck with 1 size and you have to work around it.

Professional :: Increasing Editing Stage Size?

May 30, 2011

I am creating a platform game that is 800 by 600 dimension where the camera scrolls with the player. The problem i am having is that if i want to draw a map that goes off screen the stage are that i can edit in can only go so far when i am creating the map however i drag an object further than the edge of the editing space i can see it when the camera scrolls over to it in game but when i do this i cannot easily edit the objects that are not in view in the editing window. I can slightly increase the size of the editing window by changing the dimensions of the game to 2880 by 600 editing and then changing back to 800 by 600 but still i can only enlarge it up to 2880 because that is the maximum. Is there any way i can edit very large objects like a map that are way bigger than the stage dimensions?

Flash :: Professional - Stage Size Limit To SC3?

Jul 4, 2011

I am not a Flash user and would like some information as a client. I have some problems with my service provider and wanted to verify his claims regarding the software.

1. Is there a stage size limit to flash SC3 and what is it?

2. Is it possible that the software crashes because of the data added to it (pictures and vectors)? Or dose the crash is happening from insufficient computer resources?

3. Dose a 1027X768 stage require a substantial amount of computer resources? And is a 4 year old 17" mac book pro might crash repeatedly if such data is applied to it? I understand that these are not the general questions asked in this forum

Any Workarounds For 2880 Pixel Size Limit?

May 8, 2007

Flash won't let me make the stage any bigger than 2880 - does anyone know any ways around that limit?I Googled it and found out that you used to be able to scale the SWF beyond 2880 in an HTML file, and it would show well using Flash Player 7, but apparently that trick no longer works in Players 8+.Any other ways to make a single SWF that can span 3 large monitors?

ActionScript 2.0 :: Changing Box Size From 3X3 To 300X300 Pixel

Here is what I have. I made a box that is 3x3px and it fades in, now I want it to change size from 3x3 to 300x300px. Now how would this be done?

Here is my code so far:
// create the box
_root.createEmptyMovieClip("Box", 100);
//starting alpha
Box._alpha = 0;
[Code] .....

I want the box to change size while it is fading in. So far I've tried scale and width but those change the border size too, which is really annoying because I end up with a 100px border and a 100px box, not exactly what I was going for.

Can a finished flash file be resized.
Stage is at 1684 x 1322 animated map operated by buttons in a static key located outside of map border, all on stage. Map also pans/zooms.
Two scenarios:-

1) resize stage and all contents down to a different size.

2) resize the animated map down but more so than the static key (sits outside the map) which should remain readable.
