I have noticed on previous pages that the small flash animations I have on the page (<30k) always seem to load before the even smaller images on the page. The flash is meant to be a helper app on the page, giving some graphical representation of some of the concepts, yet it loads before the product pictures it is supporting. Is there any way to get around this?
I also considered a pre-loader in the flash, or perhaps have one movie load, then pause, and play a different movie, would that work? I think the pre-loader would make no difference as it is still part of the same overall flash, which would load before the images.
