Whats up doc? gif complications

dear hobbyists, enthusiasts, and professionals,

ive created fireworks in flash with a mask and color gradient. each color of firework is in its own movie clip, which are all placed in a main movie clip. preview looks great in flash, but when i export it as a gif, it plays the frames out of order…(3 frames of the first firework, then one middle frame of a different firework, then back to another frame on the first firework, and it skips around the entire animation like this). if i open a gif animator i can put the frames back in the right order, but that takes too much time…

is there anyway other way to fix this or is my file just to complicated for an animated gif?

thanks in advance!
