Flash / SWF Previews. ABCpdf will automatically create a
still preview of Flash (SWF) movies.
The preview is what you will see if you don't have Flash
installed. It is what is used when printing PDFs. In general it is
what you will see if you open your PDF using a viewer other than
The preview needs to be created at a certain resolution and
using content from a particular point in the movie. By default the
values are taken from the FlashPreviewTime and FlashPreviewDPI
However you can specify ABCpdf_PreviewTime and ABCpdf_PreviewDPI
attributes within your EMBED tag to override these defaults.
Some movies take time to draw themselves because they use script
to determine how they should appear. You can use the
ABCpdf_PreviewWaitTime attribute to determine the time (in
milliseconds) that the movie will be given to initialize itself
before the preview is made.
For example to take a preview 2000 ms into the movie at 300 dpi
you might use the following HTML.
These attributes are useful if your settings are dependent on
the content within the movie rather than on the PDF.
