Oh yeah! that completely makes sense! thank you so much! Yes i get the targeting aspect to it completely. I thought i was doing something right with that. i could just feel it. Where i was feeling that i had gone wrong was indeed in the way i was using the frames. I did notice that it functioned differently using one frame vs. two or more. This leads me to ask why??
Well right now, i am going to go back to your captiontest4 and take a close look at that, and try to figure out why it isnt workin,… and also if i can rearrange my movie so that things dont have to be so burried. (this isnt the easiest first endeavor into Flash, i have bit off more than i can chew)
I guess it is all part of the process. i will let you know what i come up with.
You know what i would love, or what i think anybody who is starting out in Flash would just love… A whole bunch of good analogys to the way Flash “thinks” or “communicates with it self.” I want to see how and where it is making these decisions, and why and how it communicates with itself. i am beginning to see more of these things. It is good to feel that return from learning. thank you for you help so far.
Oh, and i loved you analogy about directions. It is a perfect description! More importantly though, is the address that you gave. I interviewed for a job 2 doors down from that address yeaterday. I was questioning taking the job, for trivial reasons. But, there is a power to coincidence, at least in me, and you have made me think differently about taking the job. thank you for adding the small things to a conversation! they can have the biggest effects in the long run.
