    Swish 2

    I have a movie that's pretty big, I want to add some statistics in the middle of the movie to give the movie time to load. Is it possible to stop the movie at a certain point but still have the rest of the movie load?

    I also added an arrow/next button for them to click after reading the information, but I want the site to continue to load while they are reading the information & not when they click the arrow/next button.

    I'm using Swish2.

    hi,

    there's no way to keep a flash movie from loading, all you can do is keep it from playing before it#s fully loaded.

    so your idea of stopping it will work, the rest of the movie will continue to load.

    have you thought about using a preloader which will completely load your movie before it'll start playing?

    Well, my buddy wants the site to play as it loads. However, there is a part on the site that requires a pre-loader. Are they hard to make? Is there a tutorial on them anywhere that you know of off the top of your head?

    here is a very simple example. right now, it'll play without the preloader (it's in a sprite) showing up. however if you add some content (perhaps a larger image), place it somewhere later than frame 100, you'll see the preloader in action.

    it'll only work on your server, not when you view it off your hd!

    While changing my profile, I accidentally clicked the link that said

    so now I can't talk to myself anymore...
