I have a scenario, I have 2 large movies..that need to play back to back. I have the first 1 preloading 3 levels of the 2nd 1. I have the 2nd movie preload itself 40%. In this situation, do I need the 2nd movie to preload 40% or is it reloading so of itself again?
What does the play movie command do? Is it playing the next movie? No understand....
It effects the SWF itself. What is needed is the on Frame load action.
Get URL works sorta- When the new movie is loaded locally you wont tell any difference but over a network with slower load times you will notice the browser re-rendering the page. Over a fast connection on a realitivly fast machine you can not tell the difference except perhaps a quick flicker. Over a slower connection or on a slower machine this flicker is more noticible.
If you have other Elements on the page like a silly banner that your Web Space provider forces you to display (if you are using a Free Web Space provider this is common) this will be really noticible.
How about this.....
I have made a short initial movie which has about 8 frames & stops after completing them.
The first 6 frames I have made it load 1 level each of the next movie to play. 6 levels total. The next to the last frame gets the URL of the next movie to play.
Does it help to make the load of the next movie by the method I am using??
Also, would using the unload movie for the 1st movie help make the second one load faster?
I've also noticed that the last level of the first movie still hangs around when the 2nd one starts.
