Welcome to Flash tutorial center! Is it a little bit complex for you to load external pictures with loadmovie function? Take the following tutorial, you will feel the power of using array batch, which makes it much easier.

Series: SWF Quicker 2.0

1. Prepared work: load all pictures in a new folder. Use "acdsee" to open this folder. Select all pictures and choose Rename in editing menu. As the following illustration shows, use the default options "use template to rename files", "use numbers to replace #'s", "start at", etc. All the pictures will be renamed according to "Rename Template".

[endif][if !vml][endif]

2. Launch SWF Quicker 2.0. Set the size of the canvas as Width: 640; Height: 480.
Draw a rectangle and convert it into a new movie clip symbol, make seven copies of it. Why seven? Because we have eight pictures to load totally. Please lay them as follows:

[if !vml][endif]

Rename them as mc1, mc2ccmc8

Write following script in frame 1:

pic = new Array();

for (i; i<9; i++) {

pic[i] = "t"+i+".jpg";

loadMovie(pic[i]C "mc"+i);


Glad to share time with you guys. Hopefully it is helpful to you!
