After reading and webbing i have been able to make a portfolio website with FC.
To be honest i had great help with the following video: http://www.mefeedia.com/watch/29467374
But (why o why is there always a 'but' ) it seems that FC has a transition limitation in pages of 20
In other words, while using like 4 pages for normal content like Home, Contact etc. i have ( using the build shown in the video linked above) only 16 pages left for showing the artwork in the portfolio itself.
So i really wonder if there is a better way so that i can eventually show like 50 pictures or so.(and still have 1 picture on a page) using FC. Or do i have to combine FC with..... whatever?
To be clear: i'm very happy with the result so far, but in future projects i would like to be able to "grow" to a larger portfolio.
Thanks in advance!
I'll give you the short answer: You can combine elements into custom components to work around this limitation. For example, your portfolio might be grouped: landscapes, portraits, etc. Take each grouping and bundle them into a custom component. Each component can have up to 20 states. So with a little planning you can make things work out.
There are some great tutorials on doing this in the forums. Here is a blog post I wrote on this topic: http://chrisgriffith.wordpress.com/2010/09/25/using-custom-components-in-flash-catalyst/
Marked as helpfull.
Thanks for this answer. I'll look into the solution on your blog and give it a try in a near project.
