To create the page that goes into the invisible frame you have two choices:

    1. Use the Publish function inside Flash.
    2. Use a custom function.

Whatever method you choose, remember that its output should be a valid web page that embeds a Flash Movie file (.swf extension). If you choose method (a), your page should look similar to this:




<base target="main">




<object classid="clsid:D27CDB6E-AE6D-11cf-96B8-444553540000" codebase="http://active.macromedia.com/flash2/cabs/swflash.cab#version=4,0,0,0" ID="misonido" WIDTH="1" HEIGHT="1">

<param name="movie" value="misonido.swf">

<param name="play" value="false">

<param name="loop" value="false">

<param name="menu" value="false">

<param name="quality" value="high">

<param name="bgcolor" value="#FFFFFF">

<embed name="misonido" src="misonido.swf" play="false" loop="false" menu="false" quality="high" WIDTH="2" HEIGHT="2" TYPE="application/x-shockwave-flash" PLUGINSPAGE="http://www.macromedia.com/shockwave/download/index.cgi?P1_Prod_Version=ShockwaveFlash" MAYSCRIPT SWLIVECONNECT="TRUE">





Two important things to note here. First, be sure to assign values for the WIDTH and HEIGHT attributes of the <EMBED> tag greater than 1 pixel because Netscape can not use an embed smaller than that. Second, be sure to add 'MAYSCRIPT SWLIVECONNECT="TRUE" ' to the <EMBED> tag so Netscape allows you to script the Plug-In.

Using a custom function is beyond the scope of this tutorial, but, it is important to say that the custom function should generate HTML code like the shown above.

Now we have the invisible frame and the page that will embed the Flash Movie, it's time to move on and create our 'soundbank'.

» 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.
