I'm wondering if anyone knows of a script/movie that does the
- display the total time of a movie from the beginning.
- counts down to "zero" value as the movie progresses.
I'm looking to add this "timer" feature to a captivate movie
(end product = swf) with the above functionality. Within the
captivate movie is the standard control bar which consists of play,
fast forward, rewind, stop, pause, etc. I would like to intergrate
the timer with this control bar.
Example format for a 35 second movie: (beginning time to end)
00:00:35 - 00:00:00
you'll have to hardcode the duration of you swf. there's no
way to determine that, in general.
however, if you have no branching within your swf and it's a
swf without significant timelines except for the main timeline, you
could continually calculate the duration using _level._totalframes
and the frame rate which can be calculated.
using the duration and getTimer() (to determine the length of
time your swf is playing) you can calculate time remaining. from
there would need to use the flash string methods to format your
