So I'm a bit of a newbie when it comes to using Greensock and I also have an animation that was created by someone else. :-/
The animation uses GSAP to produce a bit of a lengthy animation that needs to be exported as an MP4 file. The animation is divided up into indivdual steps by adding labels for each one e.g.:
I have the original FLA file, so that I can change the current step to be played via a variable called 'step', which I can export as a SWF file and all plays fine - the animation starts and finshes at the desired step, objects turn on and off, tween etc. However when I try to export as an MP4 file the animation doesn't play correctly and appears to start mid-way through an earlier step. :-/
I'm exporting as follows:
File > Export > Export Video
Checking 'Convert video in Adobe Media Encoder'
Setting 'Stop exporting' to 'After time elapsed' and entering plenty of seconds
Export as a MOV and open in AME to output as MP4
So far I've tried everything from inserting enough frames in the timeline to actually taking the working SWF and using something like HD Video Convertor Factory but with very poor results. I just don't understand why it plays fine as a SWF file but completely different when exported as MP4?
Anyone else had a similar issue? Unfortunately I can't supply a codepen because I have to adhere to data export restrictions.
