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
Please give me specific directions on how to change the layer
shape to conform more with the actual layer rather than a rectangle
surrounding the layer.
Please let me know if you have any questions,

How to install
When you click a link, a download of the installer file occurs to your Downloads Folder usually located next to your Trash Can or in your Users Folder.
Open the folder and double click (or File: Open) the download and icon can appear on your desktop which you open and inside is a installer package which you double click on to launch the installer.
OS X will check the download to make sure you intended to start it and that it's not malware it knows about.
Follow the installer instructions to install the software onto your computer and quit when finished.
Some require the browsers to be closed first, others require the machine to be restarted to enable the software.
Once the install is completed, remove any and all downloads from your Download folder, it's safer to keep this folder empty so you can keep track of what appears in there.
Drive by downloads of malware can occur and reside in the Downloads folder, mixing in with files residing there and await your click to install.

  • 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    the version of Java I have installed on my computer is out of date.
    It tells me that it is finding 3 out-of-date files: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

    so it will be hard to answer that question.
    You might want to wait couple of days/weeks and try again...

    in any version of flash you can get right click button, just
    get the listener to
    listen for the key/button

    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.

  • 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...

    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?
    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. < </div>
    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.

  • Macromedia Flash8 and Adobe Flash CS3 compatibility.

    I have macromedia Flash8 and am trying to open and edit Adobe Flash CS3 template and getting an unexpected file format error message. Are these softwares compatible or is there anything that I can do to enable me open and edit Adobe Flash CS3 template with Macromedia Flash8. Thanks

    Flash CS3 was developed after Flash 8, so like most software, older versions cannot open newer version files.  You would need to have the CS3 file saved as a Flash 8 file, which CS3 can do since it is one version ahead of Flash 8 and each version is capable of saving to the previous version.  You may lose some features if they were not supported by Flash 8.

  • 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.......
