This is a powerful background picture and swf file rotator. It’s capable of loading and displaying pictures and swf files in the background of your flash site.
Everything is controlled through ActionScript code and external XML file.
It supports “inteligent loading” – This feature enables you to only load a part of the whole slideshow
before the animation starts, so you can cut loading times in half. Rest of the images will load in the
background , if the animation needs to display a slide that hasn’t been loaded yet , it will wait until it
is loaded and then continue with animations.
All important properties for this file are controlled through xml:
preload : holds a value for how many images of total images are going to be preloaded , that means if there are 10 images or external swf’s and we set the property for preload to be 5 , animation won’t start to play untill at least 5 images are preloaded. When those five images are preloaded, the rest of the images will start to load also , but animation will play after only five images are loaded.
speed : holds a value for the speed of image animations (how long will take each image to animate in to position on the stage) . Value is presented in number of seconds.
url : holds the url for the picture or external swf file, url value will be added to imagepath value to for the full path to the image,
pattern : Chose the pattern for the ovelay , you can choose between 10 patterns or choose none.
time : holds the value for how long will every image be on the stage. Values are in seconds.
show_interface: Interface is those “ next previous and pause” buttons, that can be dragged. If you
want interface to be shown , pass in “true” else use “false” to hide the interface.
direction : this property holds a value for a direction of animation for the image , acceptable
from_top , from_bottom , from_left , from_right,alpha and random. It tells flash from where to slide
on the stage. In case of random value , every time images need to be animated it will take a random
