Introduction

Due to high interest in the slide show (recently published on the flashkit.com site) I have created a new slide show with several more advanced features and eliminated some pitfalls:
1. a dynamic menu, which can be externally manipulated;
2. automatic slide advancement;
3. preloading of slides for individual frames;
4. complete management of slides from external files. The .swf file once set up does not have to be changed any more. However, the fla file has to be opened and the movie exported again.

This tutorial will show you how to set up the slide show. What is different to other slideshow files for example the one presented as a template in Flash MX? The big difference is that we do not have to create one frame for one slide but one frame for a series of slides, which we control by actionscript. By this way we can show a large number of slides (about 100-200 for 10 fames) and still maintain control without getting lost in a forest of frames. Have a look at the sample file.

» 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.
