I'm working on a project... Part of it will be a screen where
text will scroll, like a ticketer, automatically, and there will be
a couple buttons to slow or speed up the text speed. Thats
basically all I need; I've seen how to make scrolling work via a
button, but I don't know how to make it go automatically with a way
to change the speed. Heres my idea; the text scrolling will be a
separate movie clip with a mask for what I want shown; drop it into
the frame I'm using (Basically in this application each frame is a
separate page), set an interval and the function called every x
milliseconds will move the movie clip ahead one frame. And if the
speed up / down button is pushed I can reset the interval + or -
that amount. Of course I am quite new to actionscript and have no
idea how to do this. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Alright, the scrolling works by moving a movie clip ahead a
frame every x seconds. However, I cannot seem to get the movie to
scroll smoothly. It is always jaggedy and rough while it scrolls. I
tried moving the length of the scrolling movie up to 180 frames...
still not right. I tried messing with the documents FPS, both down
to 5 and up to 30... Still no avail. Any help would be great.
