    Thanks Bret!

    Bret. I really appreciate the tutorials. I went through every one of them and learned somehting. Keep them coming if you can. If you need a place to host the tutorials I have bandwidth. I'm in the 3DFA game for the long haul.

    Confusion with linking movie to preloader

    So how does this preloader feature work for 3D flash animator? I have made a preloader with a dynamically loading par and percentage, which works in reference to itself. I tried making a scene with a preloader before the main movie, and also the preload movie option, and I can't get either to sync up with the main video. I guess I'm not referencing the main movie because the preloader's script does nothing.

    Here is the preloader video file's script I have been trying to use:

    I wrote this script similar to one icreated by 'blanius' within his video tutorial, and it works, in reference to itself. I don't know how to reference the other file.
    Code:
      pct = getBytesLoaded / getBytesTotal() * 100;
      ptext= "LOADING  " + toString (int(pct)) + "%"
      element ("pct_bar").scale.x = pct
    After I made a scene called "preload" this is the script I have tried to use inside of scene 1, but it does not work. It moves past it onto scene 2.
    Code:
    var loaded = getBytesLoaded();
      var total = getBytesTotal();
           if (loaded>=total) {
                gotoAndPlay("name_of_scene_2", 1);
           }
    I suppose my main problem is how to reference the information from my main movie. But at this point I have no preload feature for my movie. Can someone help me with my issue?

    In 3dfa (unless it's changed in new version) you specify a preloader in the main movies properties.

    So I don't need to reference the movie within the script if I use the preloader feature?

    Code:
     pct = getBytesLoaded / getBytesTotal() * 100;
      ptext= "LOADING  " + toString (int(pct)) + "%"
      element ("pct_bar").scale.x = pct
    I used this script for the preloader, similar to one you created in your tutorial.

    I'll have to check that when I get to the machine the movie's on.

    Is the proper method to integrate the preloader to the movie is to add the preloader with show, hide and play events?

    Thank you for the reply.

    No there is an option for preloader on the main property menu thingy. When you select to have a preloader you have the option to use built in one, add one your self, or load one from file.

    Blanius -

    Did you make your "Make an Animated Button" tutorial using "3D Flash Animator"? If not what software did you use.

    Is there a link to these programs? I am interested because I want to do the same sort of tutorials as you have done only for teaching inexperienced stock trader how to properly interpret stock charts. Would surely appreciate any additional help you can give on how to get started in this direction. Thanks,

    Hi,

    Camtasia Studio

    Tape "Wildform Flix" to make a search to get the second software (their site seems to be out of order...??).

    Flix is now sold under On2(http://www.on2.com/)the same people that do the encoder for Flash I believe. The version of Camtasia I use is pretty old and was back when they were offering a free version. With Camtasia as it is now I don't think you need anything else.

    Look through files on the forums but please respect the hard work and effort they put into their movies... The samples on 3dfa is another great choice you can learn alot... Experiment with your own games and if you stumble on a problem try thinking about it and if you cant get it im sure some people on the forums will be happy to help you.
