    Creating Flash Page


      Hi, I am new to the forums so if I am in the wrong place please direct me to the right one. I am currently working on adobe and trying to create a flash page using. I would like to get the flash to work like the one on this homepage http://www.alfonsepaganophotography.com/#mi=1&pt=0&pi=1&p=-1&a=0&at=0 I get close but just cant seem to get it to do the blocks. Anyone have any ideas I would greatly appreciate it. Thank you.

          direct me to the right one,it depends whether this: "cant seem to get the blocks to appear"  mean,


          you can't integrate your flashplayer-file into your website resp. upload to your server or

          do you have to create a flashplayer-file as well?

              Hello, I do not have a current code right now. Just trying different things from what I am reading online. I am pretty new to this.

                Hi Lola,


                well, let's play the game!You could try to insert a flash application - cause you do it the first time - into a solitary file. With this procedure I'll try to describe in detail from the beginning (translated from my German DW):


                create a really new subdirectory
                create a new html/php-file

                Work in designMode --> Insert Flash-Video
                search/browse ---> yourFLV.flv
                skin: Halo Skin 3 (min. width 280) ( it was my choice)
                width 640 ( it was my choice)
                height 480 ( it was my choice)
                I clicked all the boxes below


                ---> And now away with all these files to your server (best you have a look with the WIN-Explorer to your directory, to see all the files DW has created in your subdirectory and don't forget one):

                YourFlv.php (or YourFlv.html)
                Clear_Skin_1.swf (my choice)

                If you are satisfied with your results, you can copy or do the procedure it into your "real" website.


                To illustrate, what I would like to show you, I refer to my experimental side (a table with three videos in it) about this issue:

                  This would be too advanced for a novice to try to do themselves, and I doubt you'll find anyone here willing to take the time to walk you thru it, essentially doing it for you.  It requires a few different levels of dynamic content creation/manipulation.  Your best bet will be to hire someone to create it for you or purchase a premade version of it somewhere online.


                  No offense intended towards hans-g, but you will probably do best to ignore what he's offered... it appears to be miles off topic.

                    Hello Ned,


                    you may be right, partly. I am able to admire everybodies thirst for knowledge, cause that's so close to my behavior. So I relive again and again to be in a dark corridor with many closed doors. When I open it I always come to another dark corridor, who cares?

                      Thank you for the replys. I did see that it is a adobe flash program. I just have to figure it out.  I just thought I may get a quick answer here. I know it has preload bars and tiles that fade with a new image over a old image. Its a alpha fade transition. Just gotta figure it out. I suppose its just a hobby so I have all the time in the world.
