I'm a complete newbie at Flash and trying to build my first
movie, just a basic slideshow. I have about a dozen jpegs all same
size, and I just want a basic fade out and fade in the next one, no
user interractivity necessary. I imported the jpegs into the
FlashMX (v6) environment, converted to graphic symbols, created a
movie clip symbol for each image, and set up the fade in/fade out.
Each individual movie clip works OK, but I can't figure out how to
arrange my movie clips to display in succession in the main
timeline. I can set frame 1 as a keyframe and place a movie clip in
that frame, test the movie, and the clip plays. I put a keyframe in
frame 2 and put the next movie clip in that frame, then nothing
works. Any suggestions? If someone could just explain the basic
principal of playing several movie clips in succession, or just
point me in the right diresction, I would be very grateful.
