I need to create a count-down timer that has a round "face"
and an inner "fill" element within the face that starts as a full
360 degree circle and decreases down to zero degrees as the timer
counts down and reaches 0.
See the "Be The Referee" demo at the link below for an
example of the kind of thing I mean....
The initial count-down value will be dynamic and not always
the same, so it might be a 30 second timer or 10...etc..
I have been playing around with various bits of pie-chart
code to see if I could create a wegde that starts at 360 and
decreases, but it's not that smooth and I figured that some kind of
combination of Drawing API and Tween would be better, however I
have no idea where to start.
i've had success creating a 1 degree sector (with
actionscript or the authoring environment) duplicating it and
arranging 360 or them to form a disc which you can then animate
with a loop and removeMovieClip().
