I need to rotate several flash animations on my page. I would
like to have a swf fade out and another seperate swf fade in. I
could just make a long flash animation that had all of the swfs in
it, but some of the animations will change from time to time, while
others will stay the same. So it would be nice if I could just
modify some actionscript to jump to the new animation rather than
having to cut and paste the whole swf into just one big swf.
Am I making any sense?
Y'all have helped my a lot in the past and I'd really
appreciate your help again.
If I understand you properly, you can do this with a simple
move.load command. Set up a movie clip with two layers. load a new
movie clip into the first frame of the top layer with a stop
command keeping you on that frame for the timeline. Make a tween of
the first layer to alpha 0% for frames 2-10 or so, depending on how
long you want your transition. On frame 2, write a frame based
script that loads a new movie in the lower layer based on whatever
input you've selected (e.g. a user clicking on a button that sends
a variable to the movie clip you're working in) At the last frame
of the animation, which is also the gotoAndStop(1) command, add a
movie.load command to swap the image on layer 1 to be the one that
you just inserted on layer 2. That'll set you up for the next
Not sure that was clear, but I just did this for a client.
Good luck. Hope the concept at least gave you some
