    Site layout question

    Hi,

    I'm new to Flash and I have a question regarding the layout of my site. I'm still building it and the size is around 1000K and I haven't even added the main content(pictures) to the site yet.

    The whole thing is on the timeline and is divided into scenes. Each "section" is a different scene.

    I'm wondering if there is a better/more efficient way to put this thing together that would help reduce the file size. Or if there is a way I could get a preloader to pop up for each individual scene.

    You can go to this address to see the progress on the site so far:zachmccain.com

    Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks.

    i would suggest exporting each scene as it's own swf, and only load it when requested.

    since you are using mx2oo4, investigate the movielcliploader class in the Flash Help files. From what i see from your site, you should have no problem understanding this.

    this tutorial will help too

    Thanks Meglomor.

    I guess I need to learn about movieclips. Thanks for the suggestion. I'll give it a shot.
