Pan and Zoom View w/Thumbnail


This tutorial shows how to do a pan and zoom with a thumbnail and large(er) viewing window. In addition, it does a centered zoom. See the example below...

(742K with the photo)

The basic idea is to control the large view vial the smaller view. This tutorial assumes you know at least how to make buttons, create masks and movie clips. It assumes you can name an instance and. This tutorial is aimed at helping you to create the same thing from scratch, but obviously the existing parts will help since the learning curve should moreso be in the math and the interactions. It may be hard to follow for beginners. Either way, I would appreciate hearing your feedback

If you follow the action script from the tutorial as opposed to re-engineering from the .fla file, I would suggest going to expert mode. It's much easier to edit that way.

» 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.
