Convert Folder Images 2 Frames

July 2nd, 2007 by Slav

Imagine you need to import a bunch of images and place them on the frames in a movie clip. Sure flash has an import command that can recognise image sequence, but what if your images are not an animation sequence ? What if you need to convert them all into movie clips as well ? And have a different registration point other than default top left ?

This extension first lets you select a folder where to import the images from  :

Then it asks you whether you want to :

  • Convert the files to MovieClips (if uncheck this, it will just place the graphics as bitmaps)
  • export for AS
  • export on the first frame
  • create labels – labels will be created based on the assets filename

Extension will first create a MovieClip based on the folder name, then create a timeline with frames and places the assets on this frame.

Example below shows images being created with frame names and converted into a movie clip. Extension will automaticaly add stop(); action on the first frame.

    This works great in WIn with CS3, but it fails at
    var xmlUIPanel = dom.xmlPanel(fl.configURI+ “/Commands/slav/folder2frames.xml”);

    under OSX and CS3. Any ideas, how to tweak this?

    Kind regards
