flash clip which loads then after that just keeps looping diiferent pictures in the middele, but not looping the whole thing

Hi,

i have a flash clip that loads then

has writing jump in and a picture come from nothing to the forefront, as the hyperlinks appear at the bottom of it.

Once it has played I just want to change the main picture in the middle, not loop the whole clip, as the writing has already dropped,  I don't want to see the wrting keep dropping in, only on the intial load.

How would I achieve this?

Regards

Not sure exactly what you're looking for.  The images just need to be in a seperate movie clip, then you have a completely seperate timeline that can be stopped or played independent of anything else.  If you need more specific detail feel free to post back.

When you say seperate movie clip, do you mean a totally different flash file?

Then how do you control a seperate timeline?

Okay, to place something in a seperate movie clip you can select it and click "F8", then give it a name, make sure it is set to "Movieclip" and then hit OK.  If you then double click that item you will see a completely seperate timeline for just that object.  You can also start with an empty Movie clip by hitting "CTRL-F8" which will then give you an empty movieclip with it's won timeline into which you can place items.  Hope that helps some.
