  1. Buttons are cool when using the basic button symbols, but I find that when you want to get serious with buttons, that when you need to make it in a movie clip, especially for drop down menus.Just consider that movie clip as a little show in itself. Use invisable buttons or what ever to go to diffent points in the movie clip time line to get things done.Once you go to movie clip buttons, you'll never go back.Bill
  2. In Garage Band, I believe you publish your tunes and you can find the tune over in ITunes. In ITunes, i believe it's an mp3,,,,just find the sound and import it into Flash.Garage Band really should make it easier how to figure out how to export your production.
  3. There are many ways to do this. One thing to check out is ,,,, Is the sound a streaming sound, or an event sound.I streaming sound needs enough time to play in the time line. An event sound can be god terribly long, but you can drop it into one frame and it will play for ever.Also in flash 8, you can upload and mp3 to the server and play it from there.Or, you might want to consider loading the sound into a level via a frame action at the beginning at the beginning ot the movie.hope that helps,Bill
  4. or just select the button and type in this codeon (release){ getURL("http://www.whatever.com");}that will do itbill
  5. Hi there,There is a super great article at,,,"http://www.scantips.com" ....It talks more about image resolution, but it also talks about monitor resolution.Once you get to the page, scroll down to 72 DPI is a lie,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,That's very interesting,Hope that helps,Bill
  6. Hi I'm Bill and I'm new to the forum. I'm here to learn and help out. I've been teaching computer graphics for more than 15 years. The more I learn, the more I know that I don't know. Presently I teach Flash, Photoshop, DreamWeaver, html, css, Fireworks and Illustrator to people all over the US using web and video conferencing. I love it, it's great.I have a web site at http://www.sillybilly.comThere you will find some how to stuff and some stupid stories, game and jigsaws.That's it from me,Bill
