I copy a sprite with a transparent BG from Paint.net and paste it in to Flash CS3. It was working JUST yesterday and maintained transparency the whole time but now it wants to switch up and fuck over me with this white BG nonsense. Help.

Yeah so you should not be copy-pasting from any program into Flash. Not even from Fireworks or Photoshop. Well, maybe Fireworks is okay, but you still shouldn't do it.

You should be importing the sprites into Flash. Basically, just splice the frames you want out of the sprite sheet and import that file into Flash.

You could import the whole sprite sheet, but if it's giant then that can cause Flash to lag so yea.

OH! THAT REMINDS ME! There was a program that did that for you. Got real popular on MapleMation. Shit it's too bad I can't remember, but thanks, i'm gonna do that.

alferd's not that great compared to shoebox, honestly. the slicing is a fair bit too slow, i've had issues with small pixels in sprites, etc. i posted about it here before. but it's decent.
although yeah usually i just cut these manually with fireworks. you can copy and paste to flash freely with it, so that's why i use it.
i heard gimp also supports that??? but that's weird and honestly i wouldn't rely on it.

absolute best is just to cut these yourself and then export/import, as rapid said.

Actually since we're on this subject, how do you guys organize these sliced out files?

Like I have a folder called cutouts where I throw all of them, but I always wonder if there's a better way to organize it

i don't export them now so i never do that these days. i used to do it though, but i'd do it whenever i wasn't animating. i'd go through my spritesheets and replace them with sliced sequences instead (i'd make a folder for each spritesheet, yay fragmentation).

but i don't have the time for that anymore

Yeah it is quite time consuming if you're not using a tool like Shoebox to just splice each sprite automatically. I should probably go back to using that program since it's easier/faster and I can just pick and choose which sprites I want

yea fireworks works great with copy pasting into flash,(well fireworks 8 anyways, I never tried the other versions) but don't copy from flash to fireworks.
