Add Stop Action

The trails will not appear when you preview the movie by pressing the enter key. Actually nothing will happen at all in the stage since we have embedded our graphics into a movie and not a graphic type of symbol.

In order for the movie to work properly we need to add a single "Stop" action to the end frame to keep the main movie from looping.

Create a blank layer in the main timeline. Double click on the last frame. You should see the following pop-up menu that is shown below.

Choose the "+" symbol in the top right of the palette to add the "Stop" action to the frame. After you have done so, the frame should like like the screenshot clip shown below.

After doing all of this, you file is ready for prime-time. Choose the "File" tab located in the top left of the main program window to save and export the file to Shockwave format.

» 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.
