Streaming SWF

Streaming SWF object highlighted on the Object PalletThis object is used for SWF animations, such as Captivate movies.  If using animated SWFs built in Flash, please refer to the SWF Best Practices page.

It is identical to the Graphic object, except for the following:

  • It does not display on the Authoring Stage (so it does not take computer resources when authoring).
  • It will start playing before it is fully loaded during Preview and Published views (useful for longer movies that you wish to stream).
  • When using Captivate movies, it resizes more crisply than the graphic object.

Please refer to the Graphic object page for common actions.
