Step 12. Creating a Live Preview Movie for a Flash MX Component
In this last step, we will explain how to create a Live Preview movie, which allows a component user to see in the authoring environment what the component will look like when the movie is published. While the designer changes parameters, those changes are propagated to a customizable swf running in the authoring environment, and we make that swf look like the component and obey the set parameters.
This is a great feature that will make it easier to place components and design your movies better.
