    Level 7

      Some samples or demo?
      thank you very much

          I've had luck taking a screen shot of your opening screen in the second
          movie, creating a bitmap with it in the first movie and fade into that just
          before navigating into the next movie. Then when you do navigate, assuming
          the stage size and location are the same, it should be seamless.

              go to your message window and type

              scr = (the stage).image
              newMember = new (#bitmap, member (x, y)
              -- where x = an empty cast member and y is that members cast lib number or
              name
              newMember.image = scr

              This should create a new cast member with a shot of the stage.

                Here's a very simple behavior. Attach it to a bitmap sprite. It will fade from the previous screen to the current screen over 30 frames.

                  I think you forgot the part about changing to another movie.

                    Thank you very much:
                    Is possible to make any more nice effect with, for example imaging lingo, to
                    change the stage when change the movie?

                    Thank you again.

                      sure, you can duplicate pretty much any of director's transitions and others
                      if you're creative. Some require trigonometry to code. I have created a
                      handful of transitions that work on exitFrame or stepFrame. The advantage
                      is that you don't lose all interactivity during the transition as you do
                      when you use Director's built in transitions.

                      If you search Goolge, you'll find code.

                          now give me your hand...;)

                          Something like,

                          lingo imaging transitions

                          Or add a more specific transition name to the search like "wipe"

                            Thank you very much:
                            I need two things with SIMPLEST DISSOLVE TRANSITION .-

                            1.- Wait in the frame until the transition was happend.
                            2.- I need to go slow with the transition (speed).

                            Can you help me please?

                            Many many thanks
