This is a very basic thing that I just cant wrap my finger
I am building a new web site in Flash 8 from a template i
purchased from TemplateMonster.com
I figured out how to completly custimize the site add with no
experience of using flash.
Now I have a page in the site that is a menu on diffrent
video clips for my acting reel.
I would like the user to be able to click on one of the
buttons I have set up and the video to play in the middle of the
I have already designed all the buttons and the page but I do
not know how to link the button with a video clip and how to make
it play etc...
I know nothing about action script, instance names etc....
I have already encoded my video files in flash and tried to
import them in but the only way I can preview the file is if I
choose to embed it in the timeline. Which I do not want to do. I
have also checked out many tutorials on importing clips but I cant
seem to figure them out due to my newbee knoledge of flash.
Will someone be able to take me step by step on how to
acomplish this ?
youll most likely want to put the video within a movie clip,
then put that mc on the stage. that will eliminate the main
timelines frames having to comply with the video frames. in your
main timeline create a layer and name it labels. in the property
inspector, give your blank keyframes "labels". target your buttons
to go these labels of your video
that will take the user to the videos. within the mc's of all
your videos, you can create simple buttons that control the
playback of the video.
