Session 3: Preloaders

9/18 Update: Just fixed a bug.
It's been a long time since I did one of these, I finally switched to Flash MX. I've mega compressed it to 100+ KB for all you dial-ups. Hope you learn something.
What would you like to see next?

If you're wondering why you get this error:

Target not found: Target="undefined" Base="_level0"

It's because the loader bar could not be found. This is okay, because when you open the .swf the file will load immediately, leaving no time to control the loader bar. It will work fine when you upload it to a website.

Any questions? Hate/Love mail?

I'm with Vixy009. Could you make one on play buttons? Cause that's what my movies need. And do it in 15 days or less cause that's when my trial ends.

Otherwise I'm waiting till Christmas, and I probably won't get it there anyway.

My point is, hurry up.

Well I was doing fine till I got to the bit where you have to go see the motion tween... then I got all confused, so I still can't make a preloader.

I am using the trial version, I have just started and I am an idiot, you need to be a bit simpler in some parts, but i prefer your other tutorials.

Also, I am having trouble with play buttons and things so could you make one about buttons?

Anyway, great job!

good,but ive seen better

Im not saying that it bad or anything but you could've done better I mean when I saw the title "Flash Tutor:3" I expected it to be something like OMFG a Flash Tutorial(I found it on past 20 daily winners) I know you only intended to make it specifically on preloaders but you could've done more.
