Place an instance of your clock movieclip on the main timeline and test your movie. You should have a working timecode clock!

Now you have completed your first clock using FLASH 5. You can easily create your own custom variations on this theme using the 30+ methods for the Date object that are included in FLASH 5.

An example of this tutorial in action resides at I used the date object to create a faux timecode to go along with the video surveillance theme of the nav bar.

» 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.
