Please give me direction with this.
I created 5 swfs (simple, short animations) The swfs are named "movie1," "movie2," and so on. I want to import all 5 movie clips and thread them together so that they play one after the other inside the timeline of a new Flash Document. I am hoping to have "movie 1" play, stop, have "movie 2" play, stop and so on until the 5th "movie plays then stops (no looping necessary). It will be played on a Mac laptop and not online.
I've been fiddling with timeline actions for 2 days and can't figure how to lead one movie to the other. I've been using Action Script 2 so far.
What I've done is create 5 layers (1 for each clip)
"movie1" is on layer 1, frame 1
"movie2" is on layer 2, frame 2
"movie3" is on layer 3, frame 3
"movie4" is on layer 4, frame 4
"movie5" is on layer 5, frame 5
Is this workable?
if you have swfs (and not movieclips), that probably won't work: no actionscript in those swfs will work. so, if you have any actionscript those swfs you'll need to "load" the swfs.
