FLMX 2004 : export to first frame & preloading

Proper preloading from 0% was always a question with the introduction of components as they are “exported in first frame” thus making it rather impossible to have the preloader in the same document with the components and do a proper preloader.
The question arises again with the coming Flash MX 2004/Professional and the introduction of Actionscript 2.0 where classes are exported on the first frame by default. In Flash documents where many classes are used, it will eventually add load to the first frame, thus a longer time to download and the viewer have to wait until all the classes are downloaded. Reading the comments on Peter Hall’s post, a little discussion on how to do preloading came up.

For Classes, we can specify the frame where your classes are packaged and exported, and not necessarily on the first frame.
Go to File > Publish Settings
Click the Flash tab > ActionScript version
Now just change the “Export Frame for Classes” to whichever frame you wish, but take care that it is a frame number that exist on your Timeline.

And about components and preloading, we can do something like this. First deselect “Export in first frame” for any compiled clip symbols (v2 components).
Then as there is the ProgressBar component which you are likely to use for the preloading, just have “Export in first frame” for this component.

  1. I always just stick to using a preloading container swf, no need to bother with any export issues.

  3. That is what I always do too, and the link in the first line of the post uses the same technique "proper preloading from 0%"

  5. Definately the way to go!

    It's not worth the time and hassle of playing around with export settings and shared libraries when you can set up a preloading container in just a minute or two.

  59. I know that Paradox's download does work but it removes the possibility of changing between Macromedia Flash MX Professional 2004 and Macromedia Flash MX 2004, is there a different version of the same download but which has this option still intact, or is there a different download which has this option or what?

    If there is one could you please post it on here? It would be very appreciated.

  156. Don't you guys realize that with Flash MX 2004, a serial is not good enough. Once you put the serial in, it then goes out to check the MM website to see if it has been used yet. If it has, it will come back telling you it has been activated already. Just so you know.
