This tutorial discusses four useful actionscript techniques: the first will demonstrate how embedded for loops can be used to create a grid/table of duplicated MCs, the second will show you how to center anything on the stage via actionscript (in this file we'll center the grid of duplicated MCs), the third technique will exemplify the judicious use of functions within duplicated MCs, and the last technique will demonstrate how variables placed on the main timeline can be used to pass data to scripts within MCs on the stage and vice versa. Since the scripting is self working, a person can easily substitute his/her own pic-clip without knowing how the scripts work.

I am a subversive writer by profession/trade. My first book, The Real Work, is about street cons. I got interested in web design by accident. I just wanted to learn how to make a site to promote my book, but I ended up learning (D)HTML, JavaScript, and Flash 5.0 ActionScript by accident.

» 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.
