Question preloder question

hi,
I want to do a preloader and are a bit confused. some use different scenes and some place the preloader in the first keyframe. some use a own swf-file for the preloader. I wonder whats the difference? Is one solution better than the other?

I really want to know what you think before I decide in what way I do my preloader.
I also wonder if you have to use ifFrameLoaded because all in my mainmovie is in one frame. it must be possible to load the movie without counting the frames.

It depends. Using scenes can look more neat to some people. Personally, I think scenes are just annoying, since they mess up the timeline and are only adressable from that same timeline. And if it were up to me, there would be no preloaders, but that's just (nearly) impossible right now, unless you're making something really small.

My advice, go with the swf method if you want all your work to have the same preloader, otherwise use the single keyframe method.
