hello

im making an exercise in flash (a small website)

with currently two pages the home page on frame 1 and a contact page on frame 30.

when i go to the contact page the content gradually changes things fade and shapes change
so i created on the layers with the animated content between frames 1 and 30 a shape tween or motion tween depending on what i needed.

now heres the question if i would like to do the same with another page on frame 40 for example so that when i go to that page the content also gradually changes how do i go about it because if i go from the home page to that page it first passes thru the contact page and all its changes because its situated between the first frame and frame 40 is there a way to avoid this?

Hi Malice,

I am not so good with Action Script so hopefully someone will come along with a better answer.
I learned to use Flash5 by installing it and running it. No books and very little internet so my explanation is going to be very elementary.

I am wondering if you can use a simple 'OnMouseEvent' goto Frame 'X' so that the data can be bypassed.
If you have action that takes place across several frames, make them Movies and then place them on a layer in the particular frame -be sure to use 'Stop' when appropriate so that the movie does not play into a next page or something.

If you look at this example - http://www.nofearfiregear.com - I did a similar thing. The buttons at the bottom allow pause, restart and skip by bypassing frames. I did this by using layers of movies all on one frame.
