Variable Tracking

To make it easier to understand I've included text variables outside of the movie's boundaries that track the x and y positions of the magnifier and of the bigpic movie clip. You will be able to see these in the test movie screen. To make it updatable, I added a 3rd frame with a simple action to go to the previous frame (that I labeled "two") and play. If I didn't add this loop the frame variables would be read only once. With 3rd frame added the timeline, once it reaches frame 3, is sent back to frame 2 to get an updated position of variable x_mask and y_mask.

» 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.
