This is a flash question but it’s not for any particular version so I thought it would be best in here, plus I gotta call the guy in an hour and thought it would get a quicker response here.
In my work I produced a flash video ad for our marketing dept to add to the site. So I produced 3 files (one flv (the video) and 2 swfs (the movie and the players buttons) and then sent it back to them.
Then marketing asked me for the fla…
I said “Why do you need the fla?”
They said “We don’t know…but the company who prepares the ads needs them”
After some digging I found out that they send these 3 files along with the fla to a company who “compresses” the movie, sends it back and then we show it on our ad system. Now this isn’t the whole story, I gotta call someone and get the whole story, but does this…
“We need the fla file so we can compress the files”
And remember, we’re paying these guys for this.
