assign an _alpha of zero to the target movieclip or _level and begin loading when you're ready. there's usually a strategy used in deciding which swf to load first, second etc.
Thanks for the reply.
Just a couple questions for clarification.
- Is loading these movies with an _alpha zero in our initial 'landing page' movie (which does not have a preloader) going to cause this initial movie to have problems (with slowdowns/chunkiness)?
- Are you saying to assign _alpha to the target within the initial 'landing page' movie or to the movie you are loading?
- Any opinions on the efficiency differences between doing this with the _alpha or the _level commands?
- Any other methods?
Thanks again for the help!
yes, any simultaneous downloads will slow the download of each. that's why you want to give some thought to your strategy for downloading.
you assign an _alpha of zero to the target movieclip into which your are loading your external bitmaps so they don't suddenly appear on-stage when loading is complete.
efficiency is the same whether you load into a target movieclip or a target level.
