Anybody have a detailed explanation on how to do the Dyson front page?

Hi, I am looking to duplicate the same type of page as Dyson.com.  If you go to http://www.dyson.com/homepage.asp and after you wait for the ball to stop rolling, it features the Dyson 25 Animal vacuum cleaner.  What intrigues me is the mouse over effect of the videos and after you click on a video, it opens up on the page.  How do I do something like this in Flash?  Thanks!

Hi,
When the page loaded, the thumbnails' alpha value is something like 20%. When the mouse over event occurs, the alpha value of event's target tweens to 100%.
And when the user clicks on a thumbnail, all elements on the stage are fading out while the video fading in. (and the video player's play() function works.)
You can place the big video screen on another frame on the timeline and send the player to that frame when the user clicks on the thumb. Or you can do everything with 1 frame by coding.
You can start creating your page and ask for help here everytime you stuck.

If you don't have any scripting knowledge It would be too hard for you to create it with only coding.
You can start creating your page with timeline animations and simple codes like "gotoAndStop"s by following the idea I gave in my previous message.
As I said, we will assist you here whenever you need.
But you don't have any basic Flash experience? and do you ask us to create your site from blank??..

Hello biyik.  My question is I have created a flash slide show, and another custom flip through in Flash.  What I want to do is feature it on the front page kind of like the Dyson.com main page.  My question is, what script should I use to have it featured as just a screen and when  you click on something it gets larger and opens up on the screen?  Please let me know.  Thanks!
