View Full Version : code for a slide show, can't use XML or buttons to advance

06-04-2010, 09:09 PM
I am looking to create a flash based image slide show, but have some restrictions. Can't use XML to store the images, b/c this is going into powerpoint, and the client uses an older version which doesn't support external files. Also, this won't be advanced by a button, click, but will need to be timed between transitions. There is voice-over, music involved so the transitions times may not all be the same. I did a Google search, but every example involved XML and/or button controls.

Anyone know of AS3 examples/tutorials using the restrictions I provided or am I stuck using the timeline?

stuck using the timeline imo.

Definitely sounds like a timeline-based deal. No real user interaction, lots of special-cased graphics, and music/vo synching sounds like static content... which sounds like the timeline.

what about controlling the transition time and effects w/ actionscript? Can that be done with the images being on the timeline?
