I'm supposed to be wrapping up another xml slideshow and
could use some help ironing out some of the problems.
1. The transitions between sections is a bit harsh, I'd like
to smooth it out some by fading from 1 color to the next or
2. The captions don't sync up with the pictures the first
time around until the pics are cached.
3. When you click on the button of the section you are in,
the slideshow stops.
Just click on main.swf and you'll see what I'm working with.
Thanks a lot. Here's a link to all the files.
Few suggestions to sharpen it up, add a fade out to the last
graphic shown, especially when changing catagories, and there wait
for the first graphic to load before fading the last.
With the colour tabs you could quickly have flash do the
colour change for you by putting all the colours in one movieclip
and having shape tweens between them which you can simply call when
changing catagory i.e label frame redToGreen and have it simply
shape tween red to green.
You could also fade in the text as well if you used embeded
fonts. Change the description copy font as well. Podium Sans
Other than that looks good, a little tweak of the style and i
think you've got it, nice clean simple
