    so i was asked by a co-worker if i could help her edit a flash movie and usually im quite good at this but when i open the .fla in flash (cs4 professional) i see only two layers. there are bout ten images in the movie. but like i said only two layers. one which actually contains nothing. in the layer that does have content there are no motion tweens that i can see that should be causing the fade to the next picture or zoom out motions that occur. there's only one keyframe at the end of the picture. if i open the movie explorer i only see one scene, with a sub group named "actions for last frame" and then below that stop();. and nothing really changes if i deleted the empty layer which contains the action.

    any ideas what so ever?

    Problem solved! So it turns out that the reason I was not able to edit this movie in flash was because it was first created and exported as a video in after effects, then converted from .avi to.flv using adobe encoder, then imported to flash and a blank layered added which contain a stop script.

    Glad you solved the problem cause I had no idea what the problem was in the first place. Yes this is a common practice to export Ae files to SWF because SWF files can be compressed to considerably smaller file sizes than that of the MEGA-HUGE Aftereffects files. I use Aftereffects myself, and one movie I have when rendered is a whopping 318 megs, or 3GB's. Imagine the download time on a 56K modem connection. Also, SWF files tend to run much more smoothly than the usual AVI file types.
