View Full Version : flash object in dw, but previews as a large RED BOX!!!!

10-22-2009, 07:05 AM
I've placed an swf file (or flash object) in DW and works fine when I hit play in the properties window, but during preview in browser and when I load from my server it displays a large red box in place of my scene. Can't figure it out. Here's the link to the server. http://lucineh.com/portfolio.html

*** but here's a hint that I cannot read. notice at the link above, when you hit the right arrow the red box slides to the left. My exported swf scene takes up the whole white area including the buttons. It seems only that layer (which should scroll left and right with the click of the buttons) is whats missing.

Any help would be great. Looking forward to hearing from you!

http://lucineh.com/images/portfolio.swf also shows a red box so i would look there first

true, thanks for the observation. I did notice that in Flash when I go to: Publish Preview->HTML (to preview as HTML) it's coming out red. The scene is about 16,000 pixels wide. Do you think there's a size restriction?? I've never had this problem before.

16000? it might be i dont know but that certainly is big

Also, I went to my desktop and opened the .swf file from the folder and it plays just fine. So to narrow it down it doesn't play in 3 places:
1- (in flash when I click) Publish Preview-> HTML
2- When I preview the DW file in browser
3- when the file is up on the website

yea.. it's the only explaination I can think of because all the rest of the items in the swf are alive and well. The buttons are working and the scene is playing out how it should.
