ActionScript 1/2 :: Preload Next Photo In Slideshow?

Apr 10, 2009

Flash slideshow by getting it to preload the next photo (from a folder of numbered jpgs) when the current photo is done loading, but I can't quite get it worked out and I'm not sure what I'm missing... What I thought I might try is to have two movie clips to hold photos, one on the stage and one off the stage.

I would load the current photo into the movie clip on the stage(pictures.slides) and when that finishes I would load the next photo in the movie clip off the stage (pictures.preloadNextPhoto) so that it would already download the image and would load faster when the user clicks "Next". It doesn't work. I won't load the whole script in here, but this is the movieloader function with the meat of the functionality:

ActionScript 2.0 :: Preload First Photo Of XML Photo Gallery?

Feb 6, 2009

I have an XML photo gallery, that when it starts it has a loader for the photos. It always starts with the XML file determined sequence, which is fine, but what happens is that the tabs on the right hand side of the photo loader go astray while it is loading the first photo. If the first photo was loaded instantly this wouldnt be an issue.Is there a way that I can preload that first photo, so that it is in memory when the swf file reads the XML file, allowing the first photo to be instantly loaded ?Amongst other things, I tried embedding the photo in the swf file, but it didnt work...obviously I have no idea what to script...I also created another scene, prior to the main scene, to preload the photo.. but it didnt work either, again probably used useless script...Going further in detail, this is the main script:

Code:
import com.mosesSupposes.fuse.*;
ZigoEngine.simpleSetup(Shortcuts, PennerEasing);

ActionScript 2.0 :: Slideshow With 1 Preload?

Jun 15, 2005

Just one annoyance with both my slideshow and kirupa's, the user has to wait for each image to preload as the slideshow goes through the first time...I am trying to get my head around how to successfully implement one preload at the start for ALL slideshow images.

Code:
#include "as/movieclip_lib.as"
#include "mc_tween2.as"[codee]....

I'm using FMX04 but want the final output to be an AS 1.0 FP 6 file only.

ActionScript 2.0 :: Preload XML Photo Gallery?

Jul 23, 2006

the XML photo Gallery tutorial I found here on Kirupa I'm nearly finished with my project. The one remaining thing is to add an initial preloader to my over all gallery. 'm running into a wall with a preloader lag on the first frame. I have read up on the "1st Frame" issue...nd have tried to apply this fix to no avail. I have turned off the first frame linkage to all the library elements as well as changed the export settings to the 2nd frame but, still the bandwidth profiler has me at over 30K on frame 1 - with nothing on it... ?

Preload Images For Random Slideshow?

Jun 8, 2009

I am using a random slideshow on the homepage of my website. It worded perfect when I was testing it locally, but now that I've uploaded it to an external server which is a bit slower, and there is a delay between loading images. Here's the work in progress site: [url]... I know it has to do with the way the actionscript is written, and the order in which functions are carried out. I just cant seem to get it to function the way I would like it to. I would like it to immediately load the first image and display it, then while that first image is displayed I would like it to load the second image. Right now it waits until the first image finishes displaying to load the next image.

ActionScript 2.0 :: Photo Slideshow Using XML Tutorial?

Mar 9, 2005

I really like this automated slide show tutorial using xml. However, I'm looking for help on why when using a modem connection the file loads the first image and stalls (out of the box, no modifications to the file at this point). I refresh the screen and it starts over and loads the first image and then the second image and stalls again. This stall occurs for each subsequent image until all images are loaded. I did try adding a preloader function in the fla file ... I tired loading the images using a JavaScript array in the body of the html page.

I read all the optimization help file information and help on publishing settings. I tried various published settings with compression, with compression. Tried different fps settings etc. I'm using MX. Downloaded trial versions of MX 2004 and MX 2004 Professional and still not working, as I would like it to on dialups.I have a similar version that is dynamically loading images but is using text files to load the variables. I am very interesting in this one because is uses xml. I tried clipping out the xml code and used it in my other file and I get the same result.

ActionScript 3.0 :: Add & Remove Child For Photo Slideshow?

Jan 27, 2009

I need to create a photo slideshow which runs automatically (I don't want any "back" or "next" buttons - there is to be no user interface), with the photos fading in and out, one after the other, and music in the background.

I have external .jpg files that I need to have load, one after the other, into their own movie clips (I have 5 different movie clips which I would like to alternate between my .jpgs) and stay on the stage for a set amount of time (3 seconds for some, 5 seconds for some, etc.).

I figured out how to get 1 image to load into a movie clip with the below code:

var image:Loader = new Loader ();
image.load( new URLRequest ("pic1.jpg"));
blankMC.addChild (image);

However I don't know the code to force this movie clip to only play for a set amount of time, and, unload from the stage, and then load a new movieclip.

if not, is there a way for me to accomplish this without using XML (which I have no clue how to do . . .)

ActionScript 3.0 :: Modifying Kirupa's Xml Photo Slideshow?

Jul 17, 2009

I'm trying to modify Kirupa's xml photo slideshow by adding an extra text field, which if I understand correctly gives each element 3 children (image+text1+text2) instead of 2 (image+text). Even though I've added the third child correctly in the xml, I can't seem to get it to work at all. Here is what I did with the actionscript:

delay = 10000;
//-----------------------
function loadXML(loaded) {
if (loaded) {

[code]....

I've highlighted the parts I've added to the code provided by kirupa's tutorial. sub_text is the instance name I give to the new text field in Flash.

Making Photo Slideshow To Load External MC On Site?

Apr 13, 2010

Making a photo slideshow to load as an external movie clip on my site when a button is pushed. Here is a link to the .swf file: [URL]. There is text that describes each set of 6 pictures. After the set of 6 pictures plays through the text is supposed to disappear and a new text appears to label the next set of 6 pictures. Problem is: the text doesn't disappear! I made all the text layers a symbol/movie clip. I animated each text to disappear at a certain point in the timeline but when I test the movie the texts just remain there and build up one after the other. When watching the movieclip, pay attention to the text in the lower left screen.

ActionScript 2.0 :: XML Slideshow Photo Gallery SetInterval / ClearInterval

Dec 27, 2005

I'm using a version of XML Slideshow Photogallery that loads slideshow.swf (and other pages) into master.swf. It plays good the first time through and when I trace myInterval, I can see it increment 1,2,3 ... with each slide. When I go to another page and then come back to the slideshow - the myInterval will skip a couple or I get 2 values at the same time. This causes the slideshow to display every other image (or every 3, etc). I can see that the problem is from not clearing the myInterval variable properly. The clearInterval(myInterval); function seems to just clear the last instance created. Is there a way to clear all instances?
