Image Loop Fade in/out

Posted on 2007-11-26

I'm trying to create a loop which loads images.  The Images fade in/out and stay on the screen for a period of time - 3 seconds.  
I had the fade and interval working on there own, but having trouble pulling it together.

Code should be attached to this message

There is problems inside the rotateImages function.
I can't get the proper movieclip name passed to the fadeMovieClip function.  
There may also be a problem with depths, should I just keep loading clips at the next highest depth?


import mx.transitions.Tween;	
var myImages:Array = ["images/comm1.jpg", "images/comm2.jpg", "images/comm3.jpg"];
var ImageNo:Number = 0
var numImages:Number = myImages.length
 
//function to fade images
function fadeMovieClip(myMovieClip:MovieClip, startAt:Number, endAt:Number):Void {
	trace("Inside Fade Function: Clipname=" + MyMovieClip)
	var myTween:Tween = new Tween(myMovieClip, "_alpha", mx.transitions.easing.None.easeNone, startAt, endAt, 3, true);
}
 
//fadeMovieClip(image_mc1, 100, 0)
 
var intervalId:Number;
var duration:Number = 3000;
//var clip:MovieClip;
 
function rotateImages(image:String) {
 this.createEmptyMovieClip("image_mc" + ImageNo, this.getNextHighestDepth());
 
 clip="image_mc" + ImageNo
 clip._x=20
 image_mc0.loadMovie(image, this)
 trace(clip)
 fadeMovieClip(clip, 100, 0)
 clearInterval(intervalId);
 if(ImageNo+1 < numImages) {
 ImageNo++;
 intervalId = setInterval(this, "rotateImages", duration, myImages[ImageNo]);
 }
}
 
if(intervalId != null) {
 clearInterval(intervalId);
}
 
intervalId = setInterval(this, "rotateImages", duration, myImages[ImageNo]);

I have a ready version which loads images externally one after another.
it also has fadein-fadeout effect as transition from one image to another,
best part is, "images" and "stay time of image to display" is configurable using an external .inf file

you can download the complete version with sample images, .inf & source file at follwoing URL:
