Getting Flash metadata info CF

ColdFusion , Flex / AIR , Flash 7 Comments »

We are currently working on a large project requiring hundreds of Flash assets. On of the requirements is to be able to detect the end of an animation; in Flash 8, you use _currentFrame == _totalFrames.  This naturally has changed in AS3 to currentFrame == totalFrames.  When using the AS3 notation (inside a Flex app) to examine the Flash 8/AS 2 file, both values come back null.

We discovered that some of them were published for Flash 8, and others for Flash 9. Problem....

ColdFusion to the rescue.
