Subject: FLASH: Making a Christmas Card
From: PJ Hruschak
Date: Sat, 23 Dec 2000 17:23:20 GMT

I'm a Flash developer but am not very familiar with the action
scripting. I am creating a Christmas card and want viewers to be able
to turn on and off 4 background functions of the movie (music, snow
falling, a snowman dancing and lights blinking), so that any
combination of each can be on (making 16 possible variations), while
not interrupting the primary timeline.

I can get each of these functions to work with the whole timeline on
their own, and a few in combination by creating a scene for each
variation (so 17 scenes - one for all off and 16 for all combinations
of on), but I continue to get label errors since I am duplicating the
same scene multiples times.

Can anyone fine a nice way for me to do this using action script? I
want to send this as a self-contained movie as an attachment to ppl.
(so I am not certain if loading multiple swf files will work)?

Thanks in advance!

Please respond to my email address (pjeighatyahoo [dot] com)... and Merry Christmas!
