How to Crop a Flash Movie

Adapter from: http://www.emanueleferonato.com/2006/06/03/how-to-crop-a-flash-movie/

  1. Using the “size” button, set a new height and width for the flash movie based on your flash design
    At this point probably some of your movie images will be off of the stage
  2. Unlock all layers
  3. Click the “Edit Multiple Frames” button
    It’s is just below the flash timeline
  4. Click the “Modify Onion Markers” button and select “onion all”
    It’s is the button is to the right of the “Edit Multiple Frames” button below the flash timeline
    At this point the onion marker above the flash timeline should be across all frames of the flash movie
  5. Click “View” > “Select All”
    All the frames containing objects should appear selected

Now you can move your entire flash movie to where you want it in the new stage size.

This will keep all of the animation and tweens and layers in proper sequence and order, just like if you cropped the movie

Recursively chmod Directories Only

From: http://movabletripe.com/archive/recursively-chmod-directories-only/

find . -type d -exec chmod 755 {} \;

This will recursively search your directory tree (starting at dir ‘dot’) and chmod 755 all directories only.

Similarly, the following will chmod all files only (and ignore the directories):

find . -type f -exec chmod 644 {} \;
