"Error creating flash movie. Not enough memory available"

Posted by Mottis - June 2nd, 2011

Brb gonna kill myself.

But seriously. This is depressing. There are some serious issues with Bk5. I tried to export it, and I got the error message above. After trying everything I could think of, I finally got it to export by removing every single music track in the movie.

But that's not all. As soon as the movie reached the end of Scene 3, it all goes to hell. I don't know how to explain it. It starts skipping around the previous scene, as if it's on fast forward or something. The sound effects go completely crazy, playing random sounds constantly and the movie doesn't go anywhere.

As soon as it began, I felt sick. As in physically sick in my stomach. This is like a nightmare. I don't know what to do. Well, there are a few things I'm still going to try, but it's not looking very good right now.

I'll keep you updated, I guess.

The movie no longer goes crazy at the end of scene 3. Now it just stops there, slightly before the scene ends. I'm not sure if that's a change for the better or worse, but whatever I do, I can't make the movie play after that spot. Even if I jump straight into the next scene, skipping that particular part, it just stops there instead and refuses to go forward. The movie clips still play fine so it's not like it froze or aything.

I went to my friends house, and tried exporting the movie with his monster computer, but it didn't work at all, sadly. We were using Flash CS5 and I couldn't even save(+ convert) the flash with the program without it crashing, let alone export it. I'm currenly in the process of trying to split the movie in half,let's see how that goes. There's a very big chance that Bk5 will be posted in 2 parts.


Ahhhh Krinkels had the same problem a while back if my memory serves me correctly.
Depending on your computer system it might just be that the file is too big. Is there any way you can optimise files to make them smoother?
I found a couple of hyperlinks

Im not a flash animator but I have seen the same error crop up personally on low spec computers.

The best solution I could come up with was perhaps saving the .fla files of BK5 to a memory pendrive or external hard drive, then installing whatever version of Adobe Flash you use on a friends computer (preferably one with higher specs) and try the exporting process.

Sorry I couldn't be more helpful

Thanks for the links. I found something by googling as well, but nothing too constructive.

Here's Krinkels hyperlink. I assume it's the exact same problem

If somebody left a solution in there it might help

Good luck :P

Thanks, i sent him a PM asking what he did to solve the problem.

The memory issue happened to me because I'm using 32bit Windows XP, evidently with the 32 bit instruction set the operating system can only allocate so much (1GB and change, iirc) memory to a single program, regardless of how much physical/virtual memory you have. I think you might be running into the same problem there.

Outside of upgrading your Operating System and RAM there's really nothing you can do to fix that. You're going to need to find a stronger computer to handle that meaty behemoth. Got any close friends with a high end Mac or running 64bit Windows 7?

Good luck resolving the other issue, though. Flash is a strange creature and I couldn't even begin to speculate what caused it and what can be done to fix it.


Oh snap I was ready to post a reply to this before I even realised it's you. It's 3am and I'm dead tired @_@

Anyways, I have W7 64 bit(my flash program is 32 bit tho, dunno if that matters) with 4 Gigs of ram, so that's not the issue I'm having, unfortunately. Well I guess I could always try getting more ram. Oh well, if I can't figure something out tomorrow, I'm going to have to seriously consider splitting the movie in half or something.

Thanks for the help man, but for now, I need sleep.

Shit! So, you had finished everything in the movie, but then it wouldn't export? Damn that sucks. I'm not much of a computer person, so unfortunately I can't help you. :( Maybe if you split it in half and uploaded both parts at the same time? Anyway, good luck my friend.

Wow, that's awful.
I wish you the best, man.

sorry bout that but maybe if you want you could add the gig mech as a boss in a a different bk movie cause remember if you went though the credits in bk 3p2 the gig mech was in the escape pod that would make a nice boss in a different bk or add a epilogue or prologue that would be nice maybe you'd take less stress if you made a short video of snows crash back to earth then a battle with snowball and the gig monster and you could call it BK 3 ending then make a long chapter against snowball and gig monster in a chapter called its all over.

can you also leave a sneak peek for only the first chapter

for bk5

You're going to let a small problem like this stop you?! Get up and kick that problems ass! Show it that you are the man! And I recommend laying down and drink some sprite for the sick and maybe catch a nap.

well.... damn........*jumps out a window screaming*

That's horrible!

I hope you can get some help soon, and I hope the links above are useful.

Very good luck!
