    Here's a quick/easy sample

    http://www.lottecarlo.com/fd/plexample.swf (the movie)
    http://www.lottecarlo.com/fd/plexample.swi (the source)

    you can just copy the preloader scene and stick it in your movie, and adjust the 'if frame is loaded' on the last action in the preloader scene to suit your movie scene.

    Hope that helps..

    Peace.

    You have 2 scenes in my example, the first is the preloader (says so on the left side of swish). if you choose it, and check the 'timeline' bar you will see a frame with 'a' on it at the 37th frame (there's also one on frame 0, if you notice). double click the action frame in scene 0, and change the 'if frame ??? is loaded' to the last frame of your last scene (e.g. frame 350 scene 3), and you're set.
