Cannot stop a Flash animation on the last frame (instead of first)?
I am new to Flash and cannot get an FLA animation to stop on the last frame. I have inserted a blank keyframe with a "stop()" command, but this command stops the animation on a blank white frame (presumably the first frame of the animation).
I am working with a rebuilt FLA file (i.e., decompiled SWF file) on the latest version of Flash. In addition to Actionscript, I have tried adjusting the Publish Settings (e.g., unchecking "Loop" and setting the Flash version to 7 or 8) and editing the embed parameters (as suggested in another answer on Stack), however neither of these efforts seems to make a difference.
Any help would be appreciated -- thanks!
Is there a way for me to upload the FLA file to this post so that people can see exactly what I'm talking about?

Hi, if you insert a blank keyframe after you animation then it will be blank. Create a new layer and insert the blank keyframe on that, so it is over the last keyframe of your animation. Put the stop() action on that instead.
