Im new to AS so bear with me on this. Im making a really simple website with a few navigation buttons that point to some frames using AS, that is the extent of my AS knowledge - oh I know the stop(); command! Check me out! So as you can see, Im a real novice.
All I want to do is to create an image slideshow the same as this:
However, I dont want the thumbnails, I just want a really simple fade in/fade out show of about 8 photos. I only want this on the 'home' section of the site ie you navigate away when you click on one of the buttons.I achieved what I wanted by alpha tweening on the time line but the file size was too big at the end of it (it had 900+ frames to allow for the pauses in between transitions)
My questions to you clever people are:
What method should I use to create this type of gallery so it is clean and compact? And how can I create it with big, hi res images like on the site above?
Any suggestions would be great. I know this has been covered before but it's very hard to find specifically what Im after without having better knowledge of AS 3.0
list your image movieclips in an array, initialize an index i, create function that fades-in (using the tween class) the ith index member and fades-out the ith-1 member, use an onMotionFinished event to start a timer (setTimeout() ) to call your function after incrementing i.
