I’ve made an .fla with numerous movieclips.
I have several questions. First about scenes and then more generally about Flash MX and the main timeline.
When I add a new scene, then do test scene1, my movie plays just fine. I’ve not yet done anything with scene2, so nothing is there when I test it.
If I test MOVIE, however, nothing happens. None of the stuff from scene1 plays. Is that normal??
before I added scene2, scene 1 played fine with test movie.
maybe I’m missing something… I thought it would/should play all the scenes if I test movie. Does this indicate something wrong with my code?
My thought was to begin Scene2 where Scene1 left off, that is, using the last thing on the stage from Scene1.
Well, that happens to be multiple “last frames” from several movieclips.
Should I not start a new scene? I’m not sure how I’d pick out just those last frames.
Why did I want a new Scene??
Well… I’m new at all this, and in my reading, most of the authors seem to be saying keep the main timeline clean.
In my scene1 I think I was successful. I have only ONE frame, and all the action is in the movieclips.
I wanted to take the end of the movie and scale everything from the center of the stage smaller and drag it up and left.
I know I can select it all and scale and tween it on my main timeline, but I’m just trying to do this the “new” way by keeping that timeline “clean”. So…I thought another scene???
Any thoughts on all this?
Even if I go ahead and use the main timeline, the scene issue above is still there. I’d like to move on anyway to a scene 2 after that tween , but not sure why it’s not all playing.
