    Hey all!

    I have seen it around somewhere... let me dig it up for you.


    (I can do it but it takes a while, and I really am not feeling up to writing that up at the moment... :P)

    I have been looking around for a while now... with not much luck, but I know that it is somewhere in one of these two websites:

    FlashKit : http://www.flashkit.com/tutorials/In...ty/Navigation/

    or

    Ultrashock.com : http://www.ultrashock.com/flas/Navigation___Interface/


    I'll carry on my search, feel free to look through those sites, they have quite a lot of tutorials, opensource flash files free for download/use.

    This application is incredibly simple to do in Swish. About an
    hour's work for finished, professional quality movie.

    Samples and tutorials at http://www.designsxchange.com

    Just look up any of the image scrollers in tutorials and
    download free source form the FX section.

    Swish 2.0 can be downloaded for 15 day trial at
    http://www.swishzone.com The product generates .swf
    files and they can be imported into Flash.

    Hope this helps.

    I don't recall the actionscript and it'd be Flash 5 anyway, but it's just a question of using getproperty() and setproperty() I did a few of these when I worked with flash, easy and doing it should teach you a bit if you've not dabbled with AS before.



    btw, there used to be a tutorial on this, quite a simple and understandable one, on Were-here.com, but that place is gone

    I have looked through the site, and there do not seem to be anywhere saying the requirements for Swish v2 whatsoever.

    It may work on a Mac, no idea if it will. Download the trial version and check if it does.

    It generates a standard .swf file, compatible with Flash
    Players 4 through 6. It also supports a wide variety of
    input file formats and will accept objects created in other
    .swf generating programs, such as 3D animations.

    You can download a 15 day free trial. To give you an idea of
    what the product can do, I'm including a movie I made during
    my trial period 2 years ago (Note: I am not an artist and have
    a hard time drawing stick figures, by hand).

    Trial Sample

    Also, since this was drawn with vector graphics, the file size
    including sound is only 47 K.

    ionsurge I gave it a shot, but it does not work on a Mac. The sales department said they would not be going to this platform... and they said that Swishlite will work in Virtual PC, but the full Swish would not.

    I can make an emulator, but it's not worth it. I'll stick with my Flash MX.

    It is a foolish concept that they will not make Swish cross os compatible, InstallShield Developer 8 does it with the compiled program, why they choose not to do so is completely baffling, especially seeing as they are a pretty big company due to the success of Swish v2.

    Could be a licensing thing, they may need to purchase another license from Macromedia to produce for a different platform.
