Actually using Flash Catalyst is probably the wrong tool from Adobe for this type of project. I think creating this in Flash Professional would make the project easier in the end. It has much stronger animation tools, and the controls you are looking to add are not too difficult to program. You also will be able to export the animation into a video format, which actually might make it easier to control and share.
Now, you can import the SWF animation into Flash Catalyst, and control it from there.
Just some quick thought,
But I have no clue in Flash PRO. Do you know of a tutorial who might solve my problem?
Well, now I have tried something. Using on application start movie autostarts and the buttons are fading in after a certain time. With action sequenses ofcourse. But it´s not entirly working beacuse when i go to another state after pusing the button, the action timeline doesn´t stop.
Got a solution for that?
