    Edit and save movie

    Level 7
      I can use action script to change variables etc. I am trying to achieve the
      following:

      I have a movie eg a logo(red & blue) with text(MY CO LTD) scrolling just
      below the logo.

      I need to allow a client to change the 2 colours(red to yellow & blue to
      green) and text (MY NEW CO LTD) via sliders / colour picker and text boxes.
      When finished click a button and produce a new movie.

      The new movie will just be the new colour logo and the new scrolling text.

      Can this be done within a flash movie or possibly via a web interface using
      dreamweaver.

      Any help appreciated.

          Yes you can use AS to change the text and the color of the text. But you
          cannot generate a specific Movie for the user. Rather you store the user's
          preferences on the server (or less stateful as a SharedObject) so when they
          use the common movie their values are substituted.
