Hi everybody, I need your help!

Is is possible to embed a flash movie (movie1.swf) to play for a set period of time (say 15 secs) then replace or swap it for another flash movie (movie2.swf)?

Hoping you can help...
Torg.

Can't you do that from within the flash movie - add a load command at the right point in the timeline?

Paste this code onto a movieclip.



//this script makes the clock countdown from 15 to 0
onClipEvent(load){
//get current time
var startTime= getTimer();
//the amount of seconds to countdown
var countAmount=15;
//keep track of how much time is left
var elapsed=0;
}
onClipEvent(enterFrame){
//see how much time has elapsed
elapsed=getTimer()-startTime;
//do stuff
if(elapsed < countAmount*1000){
counterOutput=countAmount-Math.floor(elapsed/1000);
}else{
loadMovie("blah.swf", _level0);
}
}

Never use scenes :)

They suck so much they blow ;)

1- name/value pairs have a tendency to get lost.

2- Unnecessary filesize when placeholders can be created with 1 line of code.

3- Stupid amounts of coding necessary to talk across them accurately.
