Now to add a preloader that works with the choice that the user makes on the bar buffer.

For the preloader the only symbols you need to draw are the needle, the exterior of the dial and the face. Add a new layer, add a keyframe at frame 6. With this highlighted put your face dial and needle in place, with the needle pointing at empty. Now add 17 empty frames. With with the keyframe at frame 6 highlighted place your needle on the dial, with it highlighted, choose modify->transform->edit centre and move the centre cross to the centre of the dial face, now when you rotate the needle it will rotate about the centre point. Now make everyother frame a keyframe, each of these is for the different positions of the needle on the dial. So on each of the key frames rotate the needle to point at the appropriate point on the dial. This doesn't need to be exact as it is on only to give users a rough idea of how much is left to load.

» 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.
