This forum has always been exceptionally helpful in the past
when I've had trouble; hopefully someone can assist me again with
I have a movie that acts as a slideshow; displaying about
three images per page with the pictures fading on and off in
different positions. It sounds rubbish but actually looks fairly
good! Anyway, to keep the size of the movie down I've used external
images but really they need to be preloaded to make everything more
Ideally the movie would start after loading the first three
pictures with the others being loaded in the background. They're
not particularly big (about 10k each) but the spilt second they do
take to appear isn't ideal.
My question, therefore, is how to preload these images and
then display them in each movie clip frame when required.
As with a lot of things in Flash (and purely though my lack
of technical knowledge) it seems to be an extremely difficult
process and I've found a few tutorials on the Internet that offer
similar systems but none that fit the bill exactly.
