i assume there's not much content that needs to be created. otherwise, you should hire someone to do some or all of this.
1. how's the tv accessing the flash? for example, is the tv connected to a computer?
2. that dvd is intended to be displayed via a computer?
Thanks so much for responding. There are two separate projects, both displaying something close to each other.
One is a presentation that will loop, playing from a computer and viewed via a TV display. The other, will be a DVD to hand out with content, containing navigation to be able to access files included on the DVD.
Does that help?
depending on how close the contents are, you may be able to create one fla that uses a boolean to determine what will be shown on the dvd and what will be shown when viewed on the tv.
there's no way to determine if you should create two projects or just one and use that boolean without details of the two projects. but, being able to create one project that would serve two uses would save time and might be worth pursuing.
i just don't know how to help you any further without details of your project. if you have a website you can reference that shows what you want it would be easier to give you advice.
Your idea so great, just not sure how to go about it.
I purchased templates from www.bigbangtemplates.com and was hoping I could edit at least one of those to save time, as I haven't used actionscript, other than testing a few simple things out and have book available. I was hoping some of the obvious navigation would already be in place and I could replace pieces, etc.
I have or can quickly create some supporing graphics for my visuals, but need to focus on a visual that show's the company, it's five or so areas of interest, some kind of narrowing in on each one with some more text, back to the menu, on to the next one, etc. That's just a rough guess.
I also purchased some video backgrounds, if that helps for flair, without beeing cheezy. :-/
Just wondering if this is more or less a joke to be able to accomplish this and if this is going to be a task beyond the rusty beginner? If so, I think I need to just shoot myself. Thanks for the assist!
this is too much to create from scratch for a beginner and editing templates is difficult unless the template is carefully created and it's intended to be edited in the way(s) you need to edit it.
i think the best bet is to plead for mercy and/or hire someone to help.
I think I was able to work a time extension and I want to get this figured out. Appreciate the assist...work in progress. Thanks!
Is there a general arena of time or average that is normally used with the frames-per-second (i.e., 15fps vs 20fps vs 30fps)?
that depends what you're trying to accomplish.
but, the higher your fps, the more demand you put on the user's computer and the smoother your application will appear.
24 fps is usually high enough for good tweening effects and not high enough to cause problems for most users.
