    Menu with fading images - How-to?

    blueCRUSH20
      Please check out the menu of this site.

      Any ideas how to create something like this? Each menu option has a different image assigned and when you click the option it changes one image by another with a fading effect. I know how to fade images and how to jump to different points of an animation but how do i know which images to fade when i press a button? Is there a automatic way to do this?

      Thanks.

          The top is just a movieclip that moves when the button is pushed...

          on(Release){
          _root.header_mc_name.gotoAndPlay("aboutus_head");
          _root.content_mc_name.gotoAndPlay("aboutus_content");
          }

          That assumes you clicked an About Us button and that your top header has an instance name of header_mc_name with a label called aboutus_head (you could also use a frame number here without quotes) where your image fade takes place. At the same time the content movieclip would also jump to a label named aboutus_content where the new content would be displayed.

          It's easier then it sounds.
