I am making a presentation in Flash MX, similar to a Powerpoint presentation but with an initial navigation screen. You can return to this screen at any time to pick a ‘slide’ to display.
When you load the presentation a short animation plays that makes the company logo appear as a flash of black moves along an orange line. At the moment this plays once, then stops. This is in the library as a movie. When you load a new slide, I would like it to play again, once. At the moment this does not occur. How can I achieve this?
There is at present a background layer, that has the theme and this animation, and another layer with the slides including the main menu. I simply use the go to and stop action to get to the different slides.
The second question is about publishing. My boss says that he cannot open the swf file I sent him. I made this by publishing my presentation in its current state. After publishing to a swf, should the presenation run on any computer with the flash 6 player? The file size went down from over a megabye to under 100k, which I was surprised about, especially since it contained a 50k MP3 file that I made.
