I've built a website using FC CS5, (by the way, what a dream for a graphic designer with no coding skills!). I want to add a slideshow gallery to the site, but would prefer not to build one from scratch. I've learned that XML slideshows don't work with FC. Any suggestions? I'll pay for it if I have to. I just don't want to create it from nothing.
Currently, I'm running a FC swf inside of a FC project. It works, but it worries me. It loads slow and I also need more than 20 frames. Please help!
Had you seen the tutorial here:
All the assets and step by step videos are on the subject of building a photo gallery. The latter part gets in to using Flash Builder (probably not what you want), but I thought the source files and Flash Catalyst videos would be useful.
You can use xml-driven slideshows, but it requires an extra step.
Please see the FAQ here. One of the examples towards the bottom involves creating a slideshow / image gallery with slideshowpro, and using that in Catalyst.
I used Wondershare's Flash Gallery to create a video slideshow of stained glass that I then wanted to import into Flash Catalyst...similar to the Marcus Glass Portfolio project used in Adobe's tut. Various options are given for output/published file format, so I first published as a .swf file. This file plays wonderfully using Adobe Flash Player 10 but won't import into FC. I went back & republished another way Wondershare suggested & ended up with
2 files: 1 is .swf & the other is .html. This swf plays in Flash Player 10 & the .html plays fine in the browser, so 1) would I have to use these 2 files in Dreamweaver somehow or do I have to convert the 1st .swf into flv to use in FC? Any help is greatly appreciated!!
