Note: (Animate CC only) Video Cue Points feature is deprecated and will be unavailable with Animate CC
Use video cue points to allow events to be triggered at specific times in the video. There are two kinds of cue points that you can work with in Flash:
Encoded cue points. These are cue points you add when encoding video with Adobe Media Encoder. For more information about adding cue points in Adobe Media Encoder, see Using Adobe Media Encoder. Encoded cue points can be accessed by other applications in addition to Animate.
ActionScript cue points. These are cue points you add to a video with the Property inspector in Animate. ActionScript cue points are accessible only to Animate and Flash Player. For more information about ActionScript cue points, see Understanding Cue Points in the ActionScript 3.0 Developer’s Guide.
When an FLVPlayback component instance is selected on the Stage, the video cue points list appears in the Property inspector. You can also preview the entire video on the Stage and add ActionScript cue points using the Property inspector while previewing the video, including videos served by Adobe Media Server.
To work with cue points in the Property inspector:
You can import and export lists of cue point from within the Property inspector. Only ActionScript cue points can be imported to avoid conflicts with cue points that have already been embedded inside the video during encoding.
The Import and Export cue point buttons at the top of Cue Points section allow you to import or export cue point lists in XML format. When exporting, the list includes all Navigation and Event cue points which are embedded in the video, along with all ActionScript cue points you have added. When importing, a dialog showing the number of ActionScript cue points imported is displayed.
