I am trying to use video footage in Flash MX. I imported an entire video, I was very impressed with the compression down to only 3mb from 60mb of the original .Mpeg with sound.
I am trying to just cut out a few selected frames from the video, I can’t seem to do it. If a Drag over about 50 frames halfway through, and select copy frames and paste into a new symbol I get 50 frames from the start of the movie.
If I change the 50 frames to keyframes each keyframe changes to the starting movie frame.
I have no idea how to get around this problem…
anyway I can alter the frames in the movie separately?
Also compression is a big factor, within MX how will compression of .Avi / .Mpg / and windows media compare against each other.
I want to keep a sequence I am creating below .5mb if possible.
I could use snag it to get the pieces of several videos, that I want into 1 sequence. The only problem is that it creates files in .AVI which is typically larger tha .Mpg.
To change it I will have to go all the way through pinacle studio, which I have no idea how to use, not even installed as yet!
Info much appreciated!
