Preloader not working when image scroller present

Hi:
I designed a .fla that involves a large panoramic image that
I stitched together in PhotoShop, then imported into the library
and made into a movie clip, I then have the movie clip of the
panoramic load into an image scroller (the one in the components
library) on the main timeline so you get the sense you are panning
through the photo. Within the movie clip of the panoramic there are
buttons in it that then call other movie clips to load another
movie clip on top of the image scroller.
code attached to the buttons is:
on(release){
_root.attachMovie("myMovie", "screen",1);
_root.screen._x =10;
_root.screen._y =425;
My issue is the file is so large that I have made created a
preloader.
If I load the movie clip of the panoramic directly onto the
timeline the preloader works fine...
When I try to load the imagescroller that calls the movie
clip my preloader does not work at all...
Does anyone have any ideas?
I will gladly supply you with any code you may need.
Thank you
Janalese

Thank you for your information. It worked great as far as...I
could build a preloader and have the movie show up on the screen as
I wanted. Now for problem number two that has developed...
The MovieClipLoader that calls external .swf file. This is a
movie that has an image scroll bar that calls a movie clip that
scrolls a panoramic photo. Within that movie clip of the panoramic
I have buttons that then call other movie clips from the library
using
on(release){
_root.attachMovie("myModelScroll", "screen",1);
_root.screen._x =10;
_root.screen._y =425;
This is an example of what I am doing
I have a panoramic shot that is in an image scroller, that
panoramic is of a group of buildings each building has a button
next to it. Those buttons then call up another movie clip from the
library using the attachMovie clip to show another mini movie clip
of what the building looks like inside, and what the purpose is.
Issue:
The buttons within the movie clip that is loaded into the
image scroller fail to work. If I just load the .swf files into the
browser it works just fine...
but the issue is I have a huge file with an image scroller so
I need a progress bar and a MovieClipLoader function.
How do I now get the other code attached to the buttons
within the movie clip that says attachMovieClip to work within the
context.
I am so baffelled as to why it won't work...
Here is the code to my preloader and movieClipLoader
My actionScript skills are very limited so any help is
greatly appreciated but needs to be supplied in simple language.
Thank you very much

  • Preloader not working when published

    Hi...I have situation with my preloader. I am loading audio
    from an external folder. When I click on the audio a preloader
    loads the audio and upon completion plays audio.
    My problem lies in that when I test the movie everything
    works as expected. Once I view the actual .swf or the .exe after I
    publish, the preloader doesn't work. The audio still loads but the
    preloader does nothing. It might be important to not after I
    ctrl+return to test, I ctrl+return again to test as if it were
    online. It works when I do the simulate download and not right away
    then.
    Does anyone know what I might be doing wrong? Is there a
    setting in the publish settings I need to change?
    This is the first time I've had this happen. Usually I have a
    pre-loader at the begining of a flash file and load the file. This
    one is in a movie clip and only activated upon a mouse action.
    Any help or suggestions is greatly appreciated.

  • Movie clip resize not working when image is loaded

    Hello,
    I'm having some strange luck in building an image slide
    show. I load the image paths into an array from an XML
    page and then step through the array elements w/ forward and
    back buttons.
    I have an empty image clip on the stage where I create an
    empty movie clip inside each time a new image is loaded. I load the
    image into the second movie clip like this:
    [code]
    _root.picsPage_mc.mc_pic_loader.mc_individual_pic_loader.unloadMovie();
    _root.picsPage_mc.mc_pic_loader.createEmptyMovieClip(
    'mc_individual_pic_loader', 1 );
    _root.load_movie_and_stop(
    _root.picsPage_mc.mc_pic_loader.mc_individual_pic_loader,
    _root.photo_array[_root.photo_index].image,
    _root.picsPage_mc.mc_pbar, 'regular_load');
    [/code]
    The load_movie_and_stop function is as follows:
    [code]
    function load_movie_and_stop( target_mc:MovieClip,
    movie_clip_to_load:String, p_bar:MovieClip, action:String )
    mc_loader._width = 0;
    mc_slider_bar.mc_drag_pan._x = 0;
    if( action != 'simple_load' )
    p_bar._visible = true;
    p_bar.bar._width = 0;
    var mclListener:Object = new Object();
    mclListener.onLoadStart = function( target_mc )
    if( action != 'simple_load' && action !=
    'regular_load' ){ target_mc.stop(); }
    if( action == 'load_and_play' ){ target_mc.play(); }
    mclListener.onLoadInit = function( target_mc )
    _root.resize_movie_clip(target_mc, 160, 120, 250, 190);
    if( action == 'load_and_stop' ){ target_mc.stop(); }
    mclListener.onLoadProgress = function( target_mc )
    if( action != 'simple_load' )
    percentLoaded = Math.floor( (
    target_mc.getBytesLoaded()/target_mc.getBytesTotal() )*100);
    p_bar.bar._xscale = percentLoaded;
    p_bar.txt_percent = percentLoaded + "% loaded.";
    mclListener.onLoadComplete = function( target_mc ){
    p_bar._visible = false; }
    var my_mcl:MovieClipLoader = new MovieClipLoader();
    my_mcl.addListener(mclListener);
    my_mcl.loadClip( movie_clip_to_load, target_mc );
    }//___endFunc___
    [/code]
    After the image is loaded into the movie clip, I then resize
    the image to be a specific width.
    The image resizing is done w/ this function:
    [code]
    function resize_movie_clip(clip_loader_name:MovieClip,
    max_width:Number, max_height:Number )
    orig_width = clip_loader_name._width;
    orig_height = clip_loader_name._height;
    aspect_ratio = orig_width / orig_height;
    if( (orig_width > max_width) || ( orig_height >
    max_height ) ) // If either dimension is too big...
    if( orig_width > orig_height ) // For wide images...
    new_width = max_height;
    new_height = new_width / aspect_ratio;
    else if( orig_width < orig_height )
    new_height = max_height;
    new_width = new_height * aspect_ratio;
    else if( orig_width == test_height )
    new_width = max_width;
    new_height = max_width;
    else { trace( "Error reading image size."); return false; }
    else { new_width = orig_width; new_height = orig_height; }
    clip_loader_name._width = Math.round(new_width);
    clip_loader_name._height = Math.round(new_height);
    [/code]
    Now, 98% of the time this works perfectly, but there is some
    certain times where the image resizing is completely ignored and
    the image gets loaded as it's normal size.
    Can anyone see why the image sizing get's ignored in some
    instance?
    Thanks for any help,
    Clem

    Found the solution that worked (used ._xscale and ._yscale
    instead of ._width and ._height
    [code]
    function resize_movie_clip(clip_loader_name:MovieClip,
    max_width:Number, max_height:Number, center_offset:Number )
    if( (clip_loader_name._width > max_width) || (
    clip_loader_name._height > max_height ) ) // If either dimension
    is too big...
    if( clip_loader_name._width > max_width )
    _root.picsPage_mc.txt_test = "func if 1";
    clip_loader_name._width = max_width;
    clip_loader_name._yscale = clip_loader_name._xscale;
    if( clip_loader_name._height > max_height )
    _root.picsPage_mc.txt_test = "func if 2";
    clip_loader_name._height = max_height;
    clip_loader_name._xscale = clip_loader_name._yscale;
    else { new_width = orig_width; new_height = orig_height; }
    [/code]

  • How do I enlarge the "presenter notes" window when running my presentation on an external display?

    In the latest version of Keynote, the "Presenter Notes" window is a small horizontal field at the bottom of the presenter's computer screen.  Only 3-4 lines of text can be seen.  This means that when you have a few paragrahs of notes, you have to scroll through them as you are presenting.  This is very cumbersome.  In the previous version of Keynote you could change the relative size of the slides versus the "presenter's notes" boxes when running a presentation on an external display, but in the new version, I can't find a way of enlarging the "presenter's notes" field.
    Also, in the new version, the preview slide doesn't show the initial text on the next slide if that text emerges as a "dissolve in" build when you advance forward through your slides.  I always have the initial text on my slides automatically "dissolve in" after each slide transtion.  But in the new version of Keynote, when in presenter mode, I can't see any of the text on the "next slide."  This makes it difficult to anticipate what slide comes next . . . without going to the Navigator.  Does any one have a solution for this?
    Thank you.

    I figured it out with the help of a post from a few days ago.  Although posted for a different problem, I followed these steps from Cornelia-I and it worked like a charm:
    You can change the link of LR to the images from the network drive to your local drive, best done on parent folder level: right-click the highest folder in library left panel, and choose update storage location. In the opening dialog window point it to your internal folder.

  • I just installed Photoshop CC 2014, but Latest version of Bridge will not work when I want to open it from PS

    Any idea why is Bridge latest version not working when trying to open it in Photoshop CC 2014 ? (French version) ? When trying, Creative Cloud app will open to ask if I want to download newest version, which I did numerous times now.
    Thank you

    Hi Eric,
    Here's how a similar problem was resolved between PS and BR.
    The issue was confirmed by ChunXiaYang at Adobe staff and solution put in the forum discussion on June 19 (no. 13). Here's a copy:
    I have confirmed that this is a known issue before release. And the workaround is to uninstall and reinstall PS 2014. Then Bridge can be launched by selecting 'Browse in Bridge' in PS2014.
    Please try the installation, and let me know whether it works. Thanks!
    It woks just fine since I unistalled and reinstalled PS 2014.

    I did this with a fresh install of the entire CC package. As soon as the CC packages updated, CC Bridge broke. Unistalled CC PS, reinstalled again, CC Bridge works, but CC PS updates itself again, and breaks CC Bridge.
    You know... The whole move to CC has been a massive cluster... I've struggled with the CC packages for my entire subscription year, and now I'm 1.5 month away from needing to throw down another $720 for no reason what-so-ever, just so we can Beta test your really screwed up subscription services.

  • PDF conversion with PDF2ID; Hypertext not working when exported back to pdf.

    I have done a PDF conversion with PDF2ID, however Hypertext is not working when I exported it back to pdf. I am using the PDF2ID plug-in program to redo all the product booklets for our company as the hypertext did not work when downloaded to any smart phone. All that appeared were blank placeholders in each booklet index page.
    According to the PDF2ID people the program plug-in recovers all URLs static and dynamic and bookmarks and local links and suggested I check with Adobe ID5 for help, but Adobe says my $1,000 ID5 is no longer supported and that I should go to the forums.....so here I am.
    This is the first time I've even opened my ID5, so I'm a bit lost. Now I need to improve the quality of the PDFs, as we also need to convert all images to TIFF-CMYK in order to have the booklets printed & bound professionally. they tell me ID can do that.
    Any help is greatly appreciated.

    Ugh...in some companies, that is training.
    Don't take this the wrong way David, but of course ID can't do anything. PDF2ID conversions can be sketchy in the hands of the experienced. The same can be said of properly preparing matials for print. As Bob has already alluded, you're in an unfair position there. It's not uncommon for "management" types to just throw some sophisticated tools at a need and expect someone to make it work. In order to do what's being asked of you, you'll have to learn a fair bit about InDesign and production. It's too soon to ask about the output when you haven't learned to manage the input.

  • Links not working when I export to HTML or PDF

    I am a longtime Mac fanatic, but new to using Keynote. I am creating lectures for a class I teach where the computer in the classroom is Windows, so I have to export my Keynotes to another format.
    First I tried exporting to Powerpoint. That was a disaster. Since, I've tried exporting to HTML, exporting to PDF, and print -> Save as PDF (to get a PDF that prints nicely).
    My problem? Hyperlinks within my Keynote work fine when I play the presentation in Keynote. They also work when I export to PDF. However, they do not work when I generate the printable PDF OR when I export to HTML.
    I guess I understand them not working in the printable PDF, but not the HTML. Am I doing something wrong?
    Ideally I would like to export one PDF that I could use up on the projecter (with links working) and that students could view and/or print from their computers.
    Should I really have to have 2 PDF's - one for students who want to view it on screen with working links and one for people that want to print it out?!?!
    TIA for any help/advice!

    Do you have any filters applied to your clips?
    This happened to me before, I accidently had applied a broadcast safe filter to a color matte that was black....
    I figured it out by duplicating my sequence and deleting items from my timeline 1 by 1 until I was able to export a reference movie.
    Anywho, export again, this time with "self contained" movie selected.
    Then try to import to Compressor.

    Note that you have different file names for the object (images/banner.swf) and the embed (images/banner1.swf)
    You also placed the embed in the middle of a param tag and nested all param tags.
    Because you didn't include a MIME type and the object doesn't have a classid for an ActiveX control for IE, I'm not sure what Firefox will be using.<br />
    The object doesn't have a data attribute to specify the file.<br />
    A separate embed is only needed when you specify a classid in the object.

If whatever you are using requires a username as well then it is not simply normal secured WiFi. It might be a subscription WiFi service like GOGO, ATT, etc., or a service with authentication, i.e., college campus, etc. To help you out we need to know what you are using and what connection dialog you are being presented with.

    my i phnoe4s not working. when i connect to charger apple logo keeps blinking

    Hello abuwafi,
    The troubleshooting steps detailed below can help get your iPhone back into working order.
    If your battery doesn't charge, or if your device shows a low-battery image, black screen, or "accessory not supported" alert, follow these steps.
    Inspect the connector at the bottom of the phone:
    Make sure that there are no bent pins in the connector.
    Make sure that the connector is free from debris.
    If there are bent pins or debris, please contact Apple Support.
    Otherwise, continue troubleshooting.
    Make sure that the outlet you're using works.
    Make sure that the Apple USB cable and Apple USB power adapter work.
    Plug the device in to power and let it charge until your device turns on. This could take between 10 and 30 minutes. If you don't have an Apple USB power adapter, try connecting to a computer's high-power USB 2.0 port (not a keyboard). The computer must be on.
    If the device still exhibits an issue, try turning your device off and then on again while connected to power.
    If the issue persists, please contact Apple Support.
