Getting Started

First of all... create new movie. Setup 2 scenes (Window > Scene or Shift + F2). First scene named as preloader and the second as scene1 or movie. Actually you can put all (preloader and movie) in one scene together. It's OK, but it would be advisable to seperate it especially when you create a big movie using many layers, frames and objects.

Creating Preloader

Create 2 layers, named it as text layer and action layer. In text layer, write the text 'Patience is Virtue' and convert it (Insert>Convert to Symbol or F8 ) into movie clip.

Your preloader scene at this step will look like this:

» 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.
