Recording our Tracks - for the back button

Set up your movie similar to mine i.e. on the pages layer add key frames for each page, separate each page with a 10 frame gap starting on frame 10 (this has no purpose other than making the movie easier to work on) you can have as many or as little pages as you want.

Label each of these key frames 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, etc.

Above these key frames on the Actions Layer add more key frames in the same positions. This is where we will put the code which will add page information to the "back Array" add this code to each of the key frames:

stop ();
back.push( _currentFrame );

The "back.push(_currentFrame );" command adds the current frame value to the back array. So for example as the play head reaches frame 20 (our page 2) the number 20 is sent to the back array thus recording our stay at frame 20 or page 2.

» 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.
