Advanced Animated Preloader

I am attempting to build an Advanced Animated
Preloader. The sequence is as follows:

(1) Preloader slides/animates onto the main stage.
(2) It begins loading an external swf.
(3) Upon completion, the preloader slides/animates off stage
and then the loaded swf begins to play.

I would greatly appreciate any assistance. I have not been able
to find a successful way to script this. -ro

just put like a stop thing on the frame, and when its finished loading, tell it to go to another frame. And on this new frame, make it animate the preloader offstage, get it?! Shoudl work…I think it’d be easier than scriptin it

Thanks, appreciate the response. I will try it out and post my results. -ro
