I have some Flash animations in my presentation that I only want to animate once (I put a "stop()" on the last frame). The stop works fine however, the animation begins as soon as I open the presentation which is long before I even reach the animation. So when I reach the animation, the animation has stopped and I only get to see the last frame.

Is there anyway to only have a Flash animation begin animating once I reach it in the presentation?

Hi, swf files play in a loop in your prezi and will not stop. If you convert your animation to a video file and upload in FLV, it will stop after one loop. What would you use this option for?

Hi Zoli, the FLV plays in full-screen mode. But we would like to have the original flash animation (bar-diagramm) not in full screen but with other graphics next to it on one sheet. Is it possible to have this either with flash (not looping) or FLV?
Thanks...! Esther

I have the same situation. Sometimes I want to show, for example, a proccess (one part becoming two) and focus in each one. It should be nice to be able to do that inserting an "one way animation" that starts when you get in it (without having to click in a movie button).

i have the same problem - i want to explain things using animation (for example i show some drawing and then when i click the mouse some feature is moving around the drawing or new feature appearing - basic stuff in ppt)

Is there a solution in prezi for that ?

Is there a way to go around this ? we are used to think slides but i can't think of different way to present it.

same here. I actually want to use a ton of Flash in Prezi because it is one of the great prezi features. I'd like to be able to have my title and all words "fall" into prezi (ie flash eff2) so I only want it to fall into the prezi when I get to that screen and then remain static.
