How to restart/reset Flash movie from scratch?
Posted on 2009-12-18
I have a flash movie which uses particle components and loads external movieclips. I'd like to add a 'restart' button to play the movie fresh from the beginning, I have a button set up, but it only sets the movie back to Frame 1 - this works for most of the animation, but the particle component and the external movie clips seem to remain on, and the movie plays much slower the second (and subsequent) times.
I need a method to perform a 'true' restart of the whole movie (similar to when you refresh the web browser page, but all perfromed internally inside the Flash movie).
I'm using Flash CS4 and AS3.
I'll be very grateful if someone can recommend a solution for this! :-D
