  • Looking at Autoplay features ,need some answers

    Hi Guys
    l have been looking at Autoplay for doing presentations , l have used MMB a lot quite awhile back and have moved on to Swish and Flash for doing the whole thing , my questions regarding Autoplay are ,

    Can more than one flash object play on the same page at the same time .

    Can objects be placed on top of each other , eg can a flash object be placed ontop of a video object .

    Can a page jump to another page based on a timer , eg at 200ms jump to page 3 , l couldnt see an action for this at all , what lm trying to achieve is when a fullscreen flash intro has finished playing that Autoplay will jump to a nominated page , seems simple enough but l carnt figure it , if l need to add lots of action script to the flash object and then a whole of scripting in Autoplay to get it to work ,l may as well just do the whole presentation in Flash .

    How do l get an image or object to fade in and or fade out over a set time .

    Can l rotate an object , l couldnt see many options for a transform object .

    On a large presentation how fast is the load times , how much is loaded before it will start playing , this is the reason l went to Flash and Swish from MMB , Flash is near on instant response , the work around for MMB was to make lots of small
    units that would call on the next when needed , you had to keep the units to about 2 to 4 mg for fast playback , how does Autoplay handle this .

    Thanks for any help here

    Hi Rod, OK:

    1. Yes.
    2. Not currently.
    3. Yes a timed page jump is easy using a flash object and a single fscommand.
    4. Current version doesn't contain image effects, again easily achievable with a flash object and a single line of actionscript.
    5. Not currently.
    6. AutoPlay is faster than Flash.

    Hope that helps...

      For #3, you don't need flash. Use the "Application - Sleep" command. It accepts small (<1) values like "0.0001", too, btw.

        Oh, wait a minute...didn't read that carefully enough. I thought you wanted to wait 200ms and then jump to another page.

        If you just want to jump to a page when the Flash animation ends, Corey is correct: use an FScommand to signal a Page - Jump action on the "On FSCommand" event for the Flash Object.

          Yes Lorne,
          But where do you put this application-sleep command?
          Thanks,

            Well, in this case, you would set up an IF block in the flash object's "On FSCommand" event to watch for your specific FSCommand...

            (which would be triggered in your Flash file's actionscript at the end of the movie?)

            ...and then put the "Application - Sleep" inside that if block to wait for 0.2 seconds, followed by the "Page - Jump" action.

            Or, you could use a Flash function to wait for 200ms, I imagine.
