My best CS3 error message thus far

06 Jul07

CS3 is pretty stable, but when importing a MovieClip from an AS2/Flash 8 file today, I got this sort of fun message when trying to set the class name:

Picture 3.png

“This feature is not supported by Flash Player 9, Actionscript 3.0. To use this feature, you must target Flash Player 9, Actionscript 3.0.”

Ehrrmm…. This is exactly what I am doing? My file is indeed targeting “Flash Player 9, Actionscript 3.0”... Got around this by just copying the frame contents into a new MovieClip, but this gotta be a bug?

    LOL… thats a pretty unusual one. Never heard of something more bizarre than this. Will try to help you out with it. Will get back by tomorrow if i manage to find something. On a serious note, Flash was one of my favourites at stability. These days, you never know.

    We should start a gallery with these Flash specific error messages.

    It’s because you’re importing an asset from a project that is set for AS 2 publication. If you were importing a MC from another AS 3 file, you wouldn’t get the error.

    [JC] Not really. I just copied the MC from the Flash 8 file into the Flash 9 file, but apparently the CS3 ide did not catch that in some way?
