Flash 5 Preloader Question: How to run an MC in a preloader in proportion to loading?
Posted on 2004-10-20
Here's the question, in a nutshell:
I designed a nifty little MC to use as a preloader for a movie. Basically, it's a watering can that tips over and then pours out water on a flower pot. The MC is simple: straight time line tweening animation.
Now, my question is this -- I know how to make fairly decent preloaders, with progress bars, etc., but I'm wondering if it is possible to:
1. Drop the MC into Frame 1 of the main move
2. Include an action script (flash 5, please) that would run the MC, once, not looping, smoothly and in proportion the the loading of the movie. In short, like a progress bar, but it's a watering can tipping over. The MC itself is about 16 frames.
Make sense? This is for an on-going project, so I'd appreciate your help!
