Adding Interaction (cont)

  • Right-click on the first one and add the following script in the action properties:
    On (Press)
      Begin Tell Target ("/loops") 
        Go to and Play ("loop1") 
      End Tell Target 
    End On  
  • Do this for every button, but change the name of the label depending on the actual label you are targeting in your loops movie clip instance.
  • For the Mute button, add the following script:
    On (Press) 
      Begin Tell Target ("/loops") 
        Go to and Stop ("Mute") 
      End Tell Target    
    End On 

You've just created your dynamic music scene.

Note that this example describes the process and assumes everything is in the same level. But if you decide to put your music loops on a different level (level 1 for example), and that your buttons on your main movie (level 0, for example), you have to tell your button to target the right level by adding the level in your target, like this: Begin Tell Target ("_level1/loops"). This will make your movie more effective between scenes!

» 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.
