View Full Version : flash in reverse - no can do

Please take a look at this page.


I have a flash with two images repeated over and over until frame 1000. One picture is sad one is happy. I created a little code to start playing from frame 1000 which is the happy face, playing backwards skipping the sad faces. But this is not working as i keep seeing the sad face. here is the code. Why is this happening?

setInterval(pod, 1000);
function pod()
num = 1000;

please improve my new year :o

Maybe I don't understand your goal, but why if there are two images repeated, not just have it be 2 keyframes long? Flash does not play in reverse as you mentioned, but you can mimic that if you need, but this seems like overkill for two images?

actually i said 2 images to simplify the problem. In my actual file there are 50 images ... and i need the flash to play backwards skipping 2 frames as it goes

Then you are better off to make a slideshow using actionscript instead of using the timeline. Search the forum for some threads about xml flash slideshows.
