Issue with Flash imported content

So I am trying to get my flash content imported into Articulate.  no problem, I import Flash via the flash movie import button. All is great except when my client gets the PPT, they get white screens for each slide or an "X" on each slide.  The content still publishes but they want to see what is on each page.  Is there a fix for this. 

As an alternate, I have imported the Flash into an Engage media tour slide, but the timing will not sync.  a 14 second Flash click shows the next arrow after 5 seconds each time.  How can I fix this, my client has some content where this has worked.  I am not able to get it to show the acurrate slide timing for each flash slide.

Any help is greatly appreciated.

Hi Chad,

Thanks for getting back to me!

I do want to mention that we don't support Flash development. However, you may want to have the person that authored the SWF file to take a look at the article I provided earlier just to be certain that the content is compatible with Studio. You can find that article here.

If you can't do that, you can submit a case and we'll take a look.

I created the swf, I have worked in Flash constantly over the last 12 years.  I did match the specs from the article, I did discover that the direct swf import will not work for my client because PPT + Articulate do not embedd the swf into the PPT file.  Therefore when the client gets the file the swf's are not where PPT expects them therefore showing "x" on the slide.  I understand this.  This issues I need resolved is the second issue, the timing in the "Media Tour" of the Engage interaction.  The issue is that the timing consistently shows 5 sec.  Even when the SWF is 14 sec.  Again the swf specs match the compatibility chart.

Hope this makes sense.  I will be submitting a ticket.
