How to Stop Flash File from Looping?

I’ve learned something new today! Hooray to me 😀

I was asked to edit .swf file 2 days ago, but it wasn’t taken cared of because of some other urgent task.  I searched the world wide web for every bit of information that I could use. I started on decompiling the .swf file by using the free-trial version of Sothink SWF Decompiler since I don’t have my own flash decompiler.  Then I edited a few information in it using Macromedia Flash Professional 8.  What takes me so long is that I don’t know to make the movie file stop from looping.

Here’s what I found out:

  • In your actions layer, create a new keyframe (F6) in the very last frame of your main timeline and add stop();

That’s how easy it is.
