Step 6: The Sound Movie Clip/Button

To complete this, you will have to hide the "menubutton" and the "menubutton mask". Do this by clicking the dot under the eye icon on each layer. When you can just see the "menubar" insert a keyframe on the "sound movieclip" layer at frame 4. Draw a shape on top of the menubar. This will be your "sound movie clip button", so select it and choose Insert > Convert to symbol. In the symbol propeties dialog box, name the symbol "soundmovie" or somthing similar. Choose Movie Clip as the type and click ok. We have to make it a movie clip and not a button because we want the button to have different states depending upon what the variable of "sound" is.

Now, go ahead and right-click the "soundmovie" symbol and from the pop-up menu, choose edit. This will bring you into symbol editing mode. The graphic for your button will already exist on frame one. So rename that layer button. Then Insert 3 layers:

  1. Labels
  2. Actions
  3. Onoff text
  4. Button (will be on the bottom layer.)

Click-drag on frame 15 of the labels layer down to the button layer. This will select frame 15 on each layer. Right-click the black line and choose insert frame from the pop-up box.

» Description:

The flash's horizontal road drive was done in CS4 and was upgraded to CS6. The car responds to right/ left key and flash will auto-generate the movement of roads from left-right or right-left based on random number. Have fun driving in this virtual environment and avoid other cars... :) If you are creative, a road driving game can be created from it.
