Flash 5: Run tweened animation in preloader, please help
Posted on 2004-10-21
I've asked this before, but received fairly unclear, non-functioning answers. Here's what I'm trying to do:
In Flash 5, rather than running a progress bar for a preloader (which I do understand and know how to do), I would like the preloader to play an MC -- of a tweened animation -- in proportion to the loading process. Imagine a watering can tipping over and, when it's fully tipped, that's when the preloader is done and the movie begins.
So, I create an MC, create the tween effect in the MC, drag it onto the stage at Frame 1, and then what?
Again, kindly remember that this is for Flash 5.
