I need to put together a loop of about 20 images for a client. Now I've built a movie of 6 images or so, each as their own MC, kept track of their positions and when they reached the end of the movie, moved them to the beginning. Worked fine for that few.

I downloaded a couple of scripts and they seem to use a single MC filled with images side by side and then they slide that across the screen.

I need to have the images clickable so I would still need to have individual MC - or would I?

I know just enough Flash to be dangerous so I'm looking for some advice guidance on how best to approach this or if you know of a ready made FLA file that I could download and hack I'd appreciate it!

What do the images do besides move on stage and move off? I am not sure I understand why you are using a movie clip and not just graphic symbols with a motion tween.

Hello Korkus2000,
It's a client portfolio for a client that does Graphic Design. The images are of snippets of the work they did and can be anything from a logo to a cropped image of a brochure piece. All they want is the scrolling effect (bi-directional) with a speed increase/decrease dependent upon how far the mouse is from center (this is a piece of cake). The only additional functionality is that the images act as links to take the viewer to the full write up on the selected piece.

benihana,
That looks promising, thanks. I'll go play with it and see.

Have you tried making the slide areas buttons in the single movie clip?

Not yet - do you think that'll be a problem?

The only problem is referencing scenes from a movie clip. You need to use a label. I would think just creating the images as buttons then adding them to the single movie clip should work.

Of course - KISS right!? I'll give that a go. Still cropping and optimizing images. One more to go then I'll tackle this.

Almost got it. But...

The concept of buttons within a single MC seems to work nice but I've got one problem. The multiple images I've created side-by-side are getting clipped by the stage and I can't seem to find a way to make the stage big enough to hold them all.

I'm afraid

2880 px * 2880 is the biggest a .swf will go. That is vast! You can have data off of the stage area and go to X or Y co-ordinates as and when needed.

Hi ho it's off to work I go :(

Thanks Rich,
I got it to work once I realized I could have things off the stage - man it's been a long time since I worked with Flash.
