You could create a blank video for the length of time you want a page to show say 5 seconds for example. Put the flv file off screen and use change state to... when video ends.
That is a good idea... but why didn't adobe make this a standard action??
Seems most designers who create a standard flash banner usually need it to flip. Hopefully there will be an update with this added into the program.
But thank you for the link. I saved her file as a template.
So I used this idea, and it works. But only one time. It plays through the sequence one, then that's it. The videos don't play again. Even if you go and click on the selected states.
So what if this is an issue of not being able to edit the documents "master" timeline length?
If you think about it, in the older versions of imageready and even the newer versions of photoshop... the timeline were editibale in of how long you wanted it to be (per frames or seconds) Then, if you wanted you could have your time line just loop. So in this case, once the states performed all of their functions, it would just restart according to the length of the timeline. In simple applications like this, it would be nice.
I know... probably way harder to acomplish in software development that I even know. But it's a thought. And if anyone has any insight of why my flv layers are only playing one time... I would greatly appreciate it.
Here is a link to the file I am referrig too. It was a design I created for a dealership out of St. Louis.
You can try making your flv movie a custom component, then in your timeline for the Page 1 > Page 2 transition, choose Add Action > Set State > State 1.
Do the same for all other states. Let me know if this works
I did as you suggested, changed the video to a custom component, then tried adding the action "set component state" in the action timeline, but it will not let me choose that setting.
So is there something I'm missing?
Regardless, thanks for the help.
