Enter the Distortion Nightmares

I've run into this image-distortion problem several times on a couple of computers, so it likely is happening to other people, too. Hopefully the trick I found can help you avoid pulling as much hair out of your head as I have (and I really didn't have much hair there to begin with!).

When I import an image (in the case above a JPEG file), then convert it to a symbol (in the case above, a graphic), the image is clean and everything is fine. When I want to apply some transitional effect to the graphic, I "Add Keyframe" to insert that symbol at the end of my transition.

In this example, I just inserted the keyframe right after the original, but it didn't matter how far away I inserted that frame. The action in the second frame of this movie is "stop ()". This movie (notgood.swf), when played by itself, results in Image 1 (try zooming in to see how bad this distortion is if it's not so apparent at this size and compare it to image 2, below).

The flash's horizontal road drive was done in CS4 and was upgraded to CS6. The car responds to right/ left key and flash will auto-generate the movement of roads from left-right or right-left based on random number. Have fun driving in this virtual environment and avoid other cars... :) If you are creative, a road driving game can be created from it.
