The Zoom (con't)

Let's continue the zoom routine. Open the next to last frame zoom. Normally we only have two commands: the calculation of the depth and the setting of the zoomvalue. Before this we are going to add a new command:

Set Variable: "zoom" = zoom + zm 
If (zoom > 100)
      Set Variable: "zoom" = 100
End If
If (zoom <10)
      Set Variable: "zoom" = 10
End If
First we add the zm value to the zoom, then we check that it doesn't exceed 100% or go under 10% (under ten percent the object gets too small).

Last we set the buttons: double-click on your zoom-in button (any one of your eight buttons). Then set these actions:
On (Roll Over)
      Set Variable: "zm" = "5"
End On
On (Release, Roll Out)
      Set Variable: "zm" = "0"
End On
I don't think this needs to be explained: while the mouse is over the button, the zoom increases by 5 percent at every loop. Now set the same thing for the zoom-out button but with "zm"="-5"

» Description: Hmm... what to say about this one? It's reminiscent of the closing notes of the opening music from the Three Stooges done in a church organ style with a closing cymbal crash. I'll give this one away gratis, but feel free to check out my free loops and potential upcoming license-mandated ones over in the respective part of Flashkit.
