Flash slideshow WITHOUT xml?

Hello all,

I’ve learned so much from kirupa.com and these forums - especially when trying to get together an XML flash slideshow/gallery. The problem I’m having now is that I’m trying to create a slideshow with x number of images that automatically fade in/out one after another. I also need the option to pause/play and move forward/backward.

I’m using Flash 8, but can make it in CS3 if this will make a huge difference.

The images for the gallery would be loaded directly into flash in the Library (no need for XML for this one). Also, there would be a caption and link with each image - so as one image faded out and a new one appeared, a new caption and link would appear too. Any help would greatly be appreciated.
