View Full Version : All elements in the scene into a movieclip

Hi again,

This one should be easy but pardon my "newbiness", I've been trying for hours and I don't how to do it.

Imagine: I open a Flash movie (let's call it second.fla) and I have a lot of layers with animations, actionscript and all the flashy stuff there in the main Scene.

I want another Flash movie (let's call it first.fla) to load second.swf but the size of second.swf is not the correct one, it's too big for the container I have in first.fla.

So, my idea is to put all the elements in the Scene of second.fla inside of a movieclip and drag this one to the Scene.
This way I can import the movieclip from first.fla and give it new measures to adjust to the container and place the movieclip in it.

If my idea is a good one: how can I get all the objects in the Scene of second.fla and put them inside of a movieclip?
If my idea is not a good one: what should I do to change the size of second.fla without crashing the animation inside?

Thanks a ton in advance!

Leave second.fla and export it as a SWF.

Then you can import it like here


and resize it as needed.
