right, this is kinda like a lot of the posts up here, sorry.
I've got a large (225mb) MPEG file that a client wants including in a flash movie, i gather from the other posts that the best way to deal with it would be to cut it up into >25mb peices and insert them individualy, do you need to do anything else with the scripting? (i read something about LoadMovie but didn't fully understand, sorry)
the other thing is, does anybody know any good software to cut up Mpeg's? I've tried it in premiere 5 but can't get it to export a decent quality file. would i be better off using an avi?
many many thanks in advance to anybody who can help me out.
What you need to cut up is the SWF files that you output. So until you know the size of your MX video SWF, you won't know how many pieces you need.
Flash will not load an mpeg. So you'll need to convert your mpeg's to SWF or FLV files. Then see how large they are.
We recommend a maximum of 50 MB for web usage and 25 MB for CD usage - based on average user computer specs.
