i have a scene in my flash movie that contains photos and
sounds... i want to design a preloader (a progress bar) in another
scene or in the same scene(using another frame) that shows the
download progress of the scene. I know how to design a progress bas
for loading an external image and so by using total bytes and
loaded bytes functions. But in this case i have too many photos and
sounds in the scene and there must be an easy way to do that.
It sounds like you have a pretty large SWF file if you're
using photos and sounds in a scene. Scenes aren't the best
presentation structure to use for optimal performance in Flash
Player--they're really only still around for backwards capability.
If you're used to creating scenes, my advice would be to create a
new SWF whenever you want a new scene.
