I am creating a presentation in Flash.
I am adding sound to it. The problem is I am looping a backgrnd sound for my intro. Then when I get to my main page the sound continues. That's not the problem. The problem is that when I want to jump to a different part of my movie with sound.It overlapps with the other.
Are there any rule of thumbs when using sound.
First, it's not a preloader. I have 1 main movie. It starts with a short intro and then pauses at my main page.
Then when you click on a button, it jumps you to another part of the same movie and same scene. But I want the music to stop and then start something new.
See what I did was start my movie with the first frame loading another movie with only sound. So that works. Then, when you select a button from the main page. It jumps to another frame where I have a movie clip running with sound in that.
I use commands like stop all sound and unload movie where it needs to be. But then the more I get into the movie it gets confusing trying to keep up with all the sounds.
I wanted to know if I'm setting up my movie the wrong way or is there a better way to approach this?
I would appreciate any samples you could send. I'm pretty could at breaking down the fla files.
that the same problem i got into when creating iw. now it isn't because in iw14, i decided not to make the loop loaded from another .swf. but i solved the problem fast. each time you get back to the main page, the loop stops so it's pretty nifty.
