Everybody! This is important. In a few days, these forums will be moving over to using the totally sweet Discourse platform. To ensure this migration happens smoothly with no loss of content, these forums are currently in a read-only mode. I do apologize for the inconvenience.

There is never a good time to turn the forums off for an extended period of time, but I promise the new forums will be a billion times better. I'm pretty sure of it.

See you all on the other side in a few days, and if you have any (non-technical) questions, please e-mail me at kirupa@kirupa.com. For technical questions, try to find a tutorial that corresponds to what you are looking for and post in the comments section of that page.

    Viewing issues in IE and Firefox

    Hi everyone,
    I am having trouble with viewing my flash files in IE and Forefox. They swfs become pixelated. Has anyone had a similar problem before? Any thoughts as to how I can fix this?

    Thanks,
    Joe

    are your files embeded in an html file or are you just opening your swf from IE/Firefox?

    They are embedded in an html doc. Here is the code for the file:

    HTML Code:
    <object classid="clsid:D27CDB6E-AE6D-11cf-96B8-444553540000" codebase="http://download.macromedia.com/pub/shockwave/cabs/flash/swflash.cab#version=6,0,29,0" width="475" height="175">
      <param name="movie" value="cancer_event.swf">
      <param name="quality" value="high">
      <embed src="cancer_event.swf" quality="high" pluginspage="http://www.macromedia.com/go/getflashplayer" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" width="475" height="175"></embed>
    </object>

    I don't see what the problem could be, check your publish settings and make sure that everything is set to High.

    Is absolutly everything pixelated or just images?

    Everything is pixelated. It looks as though the size is being forced, but I checked that and it isn't.

    well try publishing the html file with flash if you haven't already done so. The only problem I can see is either it's been published with low quality (doesn't seem the case since you checked) or that it hasn't been embeded properly and the size is being forced like you said.

    I'm honestly at a loss, I suggest that you double check everything, it may sound stupid but if sometimes overlooking tiny mistakes canbe the source of your problem.

    Could you post a link?

    You may want to ensure that you have your HTML export settings set correctly. Scaling, movie size, etc. If you have something changed it will change the size of your movie.

    You should then check to see if you are using an HTML file with the SWF "placed" into it. If you are, check the settings as these may differ from the actual "exported HTML" from Flash.

    I hope that made sense. Basically the same thing kritikal said.
