    Update movieclip whilst in a loop

    Marcus_House
      Hi guys.. consider you are processing an image. (JPEG encodeing for example)
      Is there any way to update somehting on stage whilst in the middle of such a process. Take teh following example. While processing an image I want to have a process loader visually telling the user how much time is left.

      I know you could use a timer and breakthe process up into segments.. but this would be much more difficult. I thought there may be a way to easily do such a thing...

      for (var ypos:int=0; ypos<image.height; ypos+=8) {
      for (var xpos:int=0; xpos<image.width; xpos+=8) {
      //Do processing

      }
      //update load bar with percentage of process completed
      }

      any ideas?
