hi all
I have a movie with 22 gif.pic each has about 18 to 30KB. What is the best way to play this? I made one swf-file with 320Kb, for each pic I use a frame. And I add 2 button for prev. and next. Is it better to use more files - 5 pic in 1 swf and when the user reached the 3. pic load the other file with the next 5 pic ?

TIA

If I were doing this I would put them all in one swf and use 'If frame is Loaded' to give the viewer a message to wait if the image has not you loaded.

On the forward button you could put;

count = count +1 (you may have to set an initial value for count.)

ifFrameisLoaded(count){
gotoAndStop(whatever frame)
}else{
message = "please wait while image downloads"
}

then on rollout, message = ""

cheers
