With the wonderful help of many people on this site, I have successfully buit a nice website using Flash CS4. I am wanting to deploy the site this weekend and I'm working on the finishing touches. I would like to add a preloader so that the viewer will have everything loaded when the action starts. Can anyone suggest a good tutorial that shows how to make the simple "rotary lines" that are so popular? I've seen these and they look to be about an inch across and move like the hands of a clock. I think it may even say "Loading..." or similar. Since I'm still learning quite a bit, I did not know if Flash actually offers some "preloaded" tools for stuff like this? Or am I better off going to Lynda.com and taking a tutorial? Thanks for the help!
hey Im too lazy to tell you but there is this book that tells you the whole shebang called Adobe Flash CS4 Classroom in a book, it tells you all about preloaders!
Dark Armor, You mentioned the book Adobe Flash CS4 Professional Classroom in a Book, which I have. I could not find anything in there. Did you mean to say Actionscript 3.0 for Adobe Flash CS4 Professional? I do have that book and it looks like there is information there. Just wanting to make sure that you meant what you said. Thanks!
