Adobe Flash CS3 help needed

I need help very badly....
Here is the reader's digest version.....
I purchased a flash website template for my local band to try
to elimate the pain of creating one from scratch. I never used
Adobe Flash CS3 before, but figured I could figure out enough
(through reading & forums) to change what I needed to
personalize my site. Well, I have spent countless hours learning,
and changing, and have come up with a pretty sweet website using
this template. I now have only 2 problems left that I can not
figure out no matter what I try.
One of my pages is set up so that fans can listen to and/or
save any of 3 songs that I have recorded in MP3 format. I have
basically 3 columns set up: the 1st column has the song name, the
2nd has speaker icons, and the 3rd column has floppy disk icons. I
want to be able to click the speaker graphic, and play the MP3
song, or click the floppy disk graphic and enable any fan to save
the file. I figure there has to be a fairly simple way to do this,
but I sure can't figure it out, and I'm starting to pull my hair
out. Please help....
Remember, I have just basic Adobe CS3 skills so a description
of what to do has to be fairly easy to understand....
Thanks in advance!!!

Please help.......

    cannot locate adobe flash player (AFP) after installing in windows 7, ie11.. wanted to open an animation and it suggested installing AFP... can anyone help urgently?

    Launch Internet Explorer and navigate to

    In the drop-down menu which appears, click Manage Add-Ons.
    In the dialog which appears, select Toolbars and Extensions.
    In the list of Add-ons, look for “Shockwave Flash Object” – which is another name for Flash Player.
    In the Status column, check to see whether Shockwave Flash Object is Disabled. If it is, click the row for Shockwave Flash Object to highlight it.

  • Adobe Flash CS5 - help needed animating a sentence so each word fades in seperately

    I am attempting to make a simple music video.
    My aim is to have lyrics to the piece of audio appear in synchronisation.
    There does not seem to be a simple way to fade in (and out) each word singularly allowing the alignment and sentence position to remain constant.
    Please help.

    Put the words on the stage as you want them to show when completed. Set that layer in the timeline as a masked layer. Add a new layer on top of that layer, set it to be a mask layer. In this new layer draw a rectangle that covers just the first word of your text. Move down a few frames and add a new keyframe to the mask layer. At this keyframe make the rectangle larger, to cover two words. Repeat as needed until all of the words are covered.
    Here is a link to a video that shows something similar: Flash Masking Tutorial - YouTube

  • Problem on flash, cannot play movie error(Adobe Flash CS3 stop working)... help guys...

    Just a minute ago my .fla file can be played. But after several minute when I added movie clips and animations. It just crashed down I guess, Adobe Flash CS3 stop working. I'm using Microsoft Vista operating system. I have an antivirus subscription which is McAfee with automatic update. I think it's a virus or what? I dunno what to do. I got a long way already with my animation on my file. When I will start from the very beginning it would be a mess and it will consumed a lot of time.
    Four to five attempts of testing the movie:
    error msg: Adobe Flash CS3 stop working.
    After several minute, test the movie again:
    error msg: Flash CS3 memory overload, I dont know the exact error message.
    I inspect the microsoft dialog and views the problem, it says APPCRASH, Flash.exe and has several .dll and other components did not load.
    Need help,
    Godspeed us all,

    first, open flash without opening a fla.  if it opens ok, create a new fla and save it.  close flash and reopen the new empty fla and test it.
    if that all works ok, open your project fla.  save it with a different name.  close flash, reopen the renamed project fla and attempt to test it.  any problem?

  • Help with adobe flash cs3?

    I don't know where else to put this topic, so I'm putting it here. I'm using Adobe Flash CS3, and I want to rotoscope a movie I made in FCE. I imported it (numerous times now, each taking about 20 minutes), but I can't figure out how to add it so it is in seperate keyframes so I can actually start rotoscoping. Does anyone know anything about this? Any help is appreciated- I've spent about two hours too many trying to figure it out. I might just be stupid... but...

    I don't know where else to put this topic, so I'm putting it here. <
    You want the Flash forums that are at and and elsewhere.
    <div class="jive-quote">I'm using Adobe Flash CS3, and I want to rotoscope a movie I made in FCE. < </div>
    But why have you chosen Flash to do the roto? Why not After Effects or even Photoshop?

    Separate "keyframes?" Do you mean individual FRAMES? You must export out of your editor as an image sequence. Easy. See the online help system or the manuals.
    I might just be stupid... but...< </div>
    You're not stupid, you just are in a bit over your head. Incomplete research. Roto is a huge niche industry, heavily supported with lots of tutorials but...
    Rotoscoping is difficult under the best conditions, you want to find some tutorials from Flash support sites before tackling this.

    Please do not bump your own posts. It's rude, especially since this is not a direct Final Cut issue and there is no immediate crisis involved. You just haven't figured out how or where to look for assistance.
    I converted it to a quicktime file, though.< </div>
    Yes, but you used the wrong export type.

  • How do I update Java for Adobe Flash CS3?

    When I ran Secunia Software Inspector today it told me that
    the version of Java I have installed on my computer is out of date.
    It tells me that it is finding 3 out-of-date files:
    Once here:
    C:\Program Files\Java\jre1.6.0_04\bin\java.exe
    Twice here:
    and three times here:
    C:\Program Files\Adobe\Adobe Flash CS3\JVM\bin\java.exe
    I updated Java via the Sun website and consequently the first
    and second warnings disappeared when I reran the Software
    The software inspector however is still finding an
    out-of-date Java version here:
    C:\Program Files\Adobe\Adobe Flash CS3\JVM\bin\java.exe
    Question is: How do I update Java for Adobe Flash CS3?
    Is it adequate to copy the updated file "java.exe" from
    "C:\Program Files\Java\jre1.6.0_04\bin\" to "C:\Program
    Files\Adobe\Adobe Flash CS3\JVM\bin\" or do I need to do anything
    Any help will be much appreciated.

    I have the same problem of you, and the same dont find a
    solution. Me it's Kaspersky Anti Virus (AV) which find this
    So (and I dont know if this solution is perfect), but I open
    Flash CS3 with the Java update choiced and apparently Flash
    fonctionnely well and Kaspersky dont find this
    prob now. But I dont never use Java in Flash (or without that
    I know that..), and same, I dont know at what Java is used in Flash
    I think that "JRE v 1.6.0_04" and more recent Java version is
    not good, because it's not quite the same Java application that in
    Flash CS3, In Flash CS3 it's "J2RE" and
    not "JRE".
    The history of all Java versions (and this) is here (
    (but in all this versions... seriousely it's a true shambles !)
    If you want the last version for J2RE in this archives it's v but the last version is J2RE but dont again in
    this archives
    (search on Java site, maybe first page ? I dont remember
    where I to find it...). But the problem... it's that this last
    version (19) is always detected bad by my AV...
    So I decide to use just the next version (v 1.5) and last
    version in this series (in archives site) which is the "JDK/JRE -
    5.0 v 5.0.16" but again named "Java 2 Platform
    Standard Edition (J2SE) 5.0 Update 16" in this dowload next
    archives page,
    so well again named "Java 2" in this page (that which dont
    the case for the equivalent same download page for Java 6...)
    (Choice "JRE 5.0 Update 16" in this page)
    For instal "JRE 5.0 Update 16":
    1) Supp all files and folders in "JVM" (Java Virtual Machine)
    folder in Flash CS3 (but dont supp this folder, empty now) and save
    this contents in archive in you have
    2) dl "JRE 5.0 Update 16", directly in this page if you want:
    ( [email protected]_Dev
    3) In install, choice "personal instal" (or +/- the same
    terms) and choice the "JVM" folder of you Flash CS3
    and AV dont detect this version same a bad file

  • Adobe Flash CS3 Rollover Question

    This should be a relatively simple question. I am using Adobe
    Flash CS3. I created an image in photoshop with layers and imported
    it in to flash. Basically the image I have is a map with a bunch of
    different states and my goal if when a user rolls over a state I
    want to state to display a color. As many of you know states are
    not in perfect rectangles, so when I do this click on a layer,
    convert to a symbol, then change the rollover state to the way I
    want it, the active rollover "hotspot" overlaps with other states
    because the layer outline overlaps with the other layers. Therefore
    I can not produce the ability to click or rollover neighboring
    states. Basically I need to use some type of hotspot function or
    tool to get rid of the default rectangle that revolves around the

    shape to conform more with the actual layer rather than a rectangle
    surrounding the layer.

    probably something very simple im missing but I cannon figure it
    out. I cannot even create a rectangle or shape with it filling a
    color. I know the fill lock is not on either. This makes no sense

    this problem, it has not happened before.. PLEASE HELP :)

    If you want to embed videos in your muse site, without using a service like youtube or vimeo, then you will need to manually upload the video files on the server and use them via the video tag available in html5, HTML5 Video
    To insert the video tags in your muse pages, you will need to use the 'Object -> Insert HTML' option.
    Since this option is not available in Muse, out of the box, I will recommend that you post this on our ideas section over here,, and let our devs team know of this requirement.
