    I am wondering if you can pass variables through the "querystring" that embeds a SWF. If so, how do you get at this variable inside the movie?

    Radians

    all the trig functions in flash use radians instead of degrees.

    you can convert by:

    degrees = (360*radians)/(2*pi)
    radians = 2*pi*degrees/360

    hope that helps,

    use XML

    I've posted this example a couple of times. It uses XML load a bunch of images. The reason it can be better than an array is that you only need to edit the XML file to add more pictures.

    i hear you man. it kinda stinks, but:
    1) it should be instant, but you still have to use the onload command.
