Our Object VR player will be a self-contained SWF file with your video file of a rotating object embedded in it. The movie will need to be imported a little later on in this tutorial, so now would probably be a good time to have a quick look at how to import video into Flash MX. You will find it in "Using Flash > Using Imported Artwork and Video > Importing video" in the contents of your online help. Be sure to read the whole section – you never know what might be useful!

We will also be mucking around with the frame rate of the Object VR player. See "Using Flash > Working in Flash > Using the Property inspector to change document attributes" in your help file for more info.

Testing the movie that we are developing will also be a strong part of this tutorial. In this case we will be focussing on the Output window. You'll find it here "Using Flash > Testing a movie > Using the Output window" in the contents of your online help, but you can read the whole "Testing a movie" section if you want.

The last thing you should check out is the trace() ActionScript command. You'll find it here "ActionScript Dictionary > T > trace" in the contents of your online help. Learn to love the trace, and use it fearlessly.

Audio Player

» Author: Davisigner
» 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.
