The whole point is that I don't have to know anything about Flash (which I don't really).
Anyway, when viewing these over the web, it takes a while for the Flash movie to load of course. During which time there is a blank page.
Is there a way to put a message or animated gif 'loading' image BEHIND the HTML Flash object, such that it is visible until the Flash has loaded?
That way I get a 'loading' message/image until the Flash has loaded, and resassure people while they're waiting that the page is not broken.
As I said this is a prototyping operation using Keynote. So I create the presentations, export as Flash and then upload them.
I don't want to have to open Flash or edit the movies at all.
Having said that, if this is the only way to do it, how quick is it to do, if I have an existing Flash movie file?
i'm just not sure if the page would render before the onload function completes...
