"If you build it, they will stay"
What we have to do here is create a movie that entertains or at least gives an indication of how much has loaded through a series of statements that check if a portion or all of the frames have been loaded. In this tutorial we'll be recreating this Bar Preloader.
Firstly like the tutorial on Basic Preloaders, we need to create a preloading scene but this time with a bar that will move over a scale like in my example.
Now divide your movie into 8 parts, at each interval, your movie will check if the next interval has been loaded. If it has, it will move the bar along to the following interval. If your movie is 1000 frames long, the bar will move one interval for every 125 frames that loads.
Tip: If you have multiple scenes, divide your movie up into 8 segments or use each scene as a interval.
