  5. Press the Test in Browser button on the Toolbar. This should launch you default browser and play your movie in the browser. If nothing happens, it means you don't have HTML files associated with any application.
  6. Close the browser and select Publish... from the File Menu. You should now see the Publish Swish Movie dialog. The default name should be "first.html". Change to a folder where you would like to publish your Swish animation and press the Save button.

The Publish Swish Movie command will create two files in the folder you selected; start.html and start.swf. Upload these two files to your web server (using FTP or similar) and your Swish movie is now ready to play over the internet.

» 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.
