To create the loading screens you have to create a scene in the begining which will be scene 1.

In this scene create four blank key frames.

In the first blank key frame give the label startframe, in the second frame give the label ifframeloaded, in the last (fourth) frame give the label startmovie.

Now create a new layer and put the loading animation in form of a movie clip in this layer.

Double click the second frame with label ifframeloaded and give it the following action:

If Frame Is Loaded (Scene last, last)
End Frame Loaded
Go to and Play ("startmovie")

where replace last with your the last scene name and last frame number of that scene.
This code will check that wether the last frame of the last scene is loaded or not.

Then give this action to the second frame without any label:

Go to and Stop ("startframe")

Then give this action to the lst frame with label start movie:

Go to and Play (Scene 2, 1)

This is all that you need to create a loading scene.
