    Control on my time line

    I would like to have more control over how my site animates. At this point I can control how it will animate in(gotoAndPlay), but would like to be able to control how the page will animate out. I believe I will have to set up a "variable" on the first frame??? And is that in combination with a "case" statement??? Is there a good tutorial out there?

    Please help.

    all the best,

    Paul

    What do you mean by page? The html page with the movie on it, or like a movie clip or loaded swf inside the same main movie? You want it to fade or something then load the next one?

    Geezer,

    I mean the base level of my swf movie. For example, with differnet instance names set up on the base level of a flash file I want to control the animation out of one instance name on the time line to the next. So yeah, like a fade out, or create a situation were the play head does not just "jump" to the next page.

    best,

    Paul

    Here's an example of one that will slide 4 different movie clips out, depending on which button you press. The animation could be anything though, like a fade.

    That's just one way of doing it. There are other ways if you wanted to load external swf's into the main movie.

    Geezer,

    At this point all the action will be happening within the same swf, but I would be interesting in knowing how to work with the external loads for speed.

    best,

    Paul

    Here's a zip with the main movie and one of the 4 or 5 external movies so you can see how it works. They are just too big to attach all of the externals.
