I'm not particularly skilled in Flash, but I usually know enough to get around (animate buttons and such). What I'm having a problem with is integrating a .swf banner I created into a specific place in a website main page.
The space that I want it to play in is 931 x 258 near the top of the screen. I want it to continuously loop, but ONLY play in that section on the main page. When I import the .swf, however, it's huge and does not conform to the space at all (even though the stage for the .swf was 931 x 238 so this wouldn't happen... go figure). Not only that, but you know how if you maximize the .swf you can see all your motion-tweened images and such on the edges and it looks terrible? Yeah, that happens too.
I'm at a complete loss. I tried looking at kirupa.com, but I did not understand the tutorial at all. How do I get the banner to play in a specific area?
Thank you all in advance!
You should place your swf in a CSS sized div container on the html page. If the scale width and height is set to 100% and it is not placed in a sized div, then there is nothing to contain the swf from trying to be the scale, or be the size of the page width (or height which ever it attains first).
