1. New Software Notice alert!

    The new Web Graphics Creator (version 4.0) will be out soon.

    For now, version 3.0 is still active and works great on most Windows machines. It no longer runs on Macs using Lion or greater... (but the new version will fix this)

    So hang in there! It's almost done!

    I created a simple test ecover and inserted the file into a dreamweaver page. When I do a preview of the page, I get the ecover swf only to show the shadow, nothing else appears. I looked at the code and it does have get the flashplayer if needed in the code. What may I be missing ?

    Thanks

    I had same issue with a simple flash page. Did you check your site list? Make sure the file you're working with in dreamweaver is saved in the proper location, or else it will display blank.

    Seems trivial I know but sure enough it was my issue. I also removed whatever .html file the program had created. When I just copied the object over to dreamweaver page it brought the code with it and BAM it worked.

    Hummmm

    Do you mean when dreamweaver is pointed to the file, that instead need the swf file in the directory of the html file. Lost here. The code in dreamweaver shows it knows where to find it, and it is there, so not sure exactly where it is required to be.

    Thanks

    Hey Ted,

    I'm not an expert in DW but when you are managing your site on the far right, you should have the following file types...

    Your assets folder
    html file( this should be the one that is created by flash creator)
    .swf file ( this is actual flash video file)
    html file ( this is the dreamweaver file you currently have open).

    Make sure you save it to the site you selected. I found that DW was saving it to another folder.

    So, then you just drag and drop your flash file into the webpage somewhere. This eliminates having to copy and paste the code in the webpage.

    Need further help just holler.

    Yep, that works. Had to have the files where the html page was located. Got in the same file folder as html page and works fine

    Thanks

    Good to hear Woosen.
    (Thanks Homesight! Nice post!)

    Woosen, can you point us to the images you've created? I'd like to see them.
