I`m completely new to Flash, have made films with Blender,After Effects+Premiere Pro,based on large MS Word text pieces; I want to arrange them into a newspaper style site so, cheating here, I have 2 questions: is it possible to have areas in a Flash film with text which can be clicked and scrolled down, ie about 9 pages worth; and are there any particular templates available which are ideal for newspaper-presentation, or even the best sites to check out as example of Flash newspaper-style presentations?
In a Flash swf file you can have sections that scroll, either as TextField objects, TextArea components, ScrollPane components, or movieclips (usually under masks) with scroll controls devised for them. There is a limit to how huch text a textfield can hold (I don't recall the number), so it may be necessary to combine more than one into another object and scroll the object.
Thanks! Getting there... Next step for me is to check PDFS (the project Im working on is text based, with the text foremost and the films embedded like a newspaper
