In this course, author Todd Perkins demonstrates key changes in the CS5.5 release of Adobe's interactive design and animation software. This course covers workflow improvements, enhanced ActionScript features (including new code snippets for AIR and several mobile frameworks), file optimization techniques, and extended support for Android and iOS app development in AIR.
Similar to the Cache as Bitmap command, the Export as Bitmap command can potentially give you better performance in your animations. The difference between Cache as Bitmap and Export as Bitmap is that Cache as Bitmap exports a bitmap at runtime and Export as Bitmap creates a bitmap from a movie clip at publishing. This makes Export as Bitmap better for more complex vector shapes. I have a highly complex vector shape on the stage in the BG Movie Clip.
So if I double-click that, you'll see that it's a series of many complex vector shapes with lots of anchor points. So we'll go back to Scene 1. To export this as a bitmap, all you do is go to the Display area of the Properties panel and under Render choose Export as Bitmap. And then just like Cache as Bitmap, you can choose whether the background is Transparent or Opaque. I'll choose Transparent. And that's really all there is to it.
So you can export an object as a bitmap at publishing by choosing the Export as Bitmap command from the Render dropdown in the Properties panel.
