I recently did a Flash introduction bit for a client of mine and due to all the photos, I needed an intro to the intro. Just set up a loop that plays a simple "loading..." and detect If FrameLoaded("end") gotoandplay("Start"). On the next frame put, gotoandplay(1). There are tons of flash demos on how to do this: http://www.flashkit.com Rob http://www.azuritedesign.com/villas/Movie1.html Is there anyway to stop the 'streaming' effect I get when viewing a flash movie in the flash movie? If it's particularly large movie, the first few frames are very jumpy (as I assume the movie loads). I'd like to avoid this. -- Michael Galvin source visual thinking -- For unsubscribe and other options, including the Tip Harvester and archive of thelist go to: http://lists.evolt.org Workers of the Web, evolt !
