Now, let’s make the other MC called “director”. Make it on the same way as the others and do not forget to name it in Instance option name dialog box, by right clicking on the Movie clip. Make 3 frames and assign actions: 1st

Begin Tell Target ("../")

If (update>5)

Go to Previous Frame

End If

End Tell Target

Begin Tell Target ("../")

If (update < -5)

Go to Next Frame

End If

End Tell Target
3rd label this frame:”speed” and assign action; go to frame 2 and play What this says, is that if the mouse was moved for more than 5 pixels to the right while pressed down, main movie (../) will go to the previous frame. If mouse is still hold pressed even not moved, timeline will go to the frame “speed”, then sent back to frame 2, what will move main movie one more frame back and so on. If Movie frame rate was set high, moving timeline from frame 2 to frame “speed” can be very fast, and movie can spin rapidly. To avoid that, we can give the movie more time to come from frame 2 to frame “speed” by moving frame “speed” to location of frame 5, 6 or even further location. Test your movie after finishing to determine the optimal speed and position of frame “speed”.

» 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.
