Tweet this item

This is a powerful yet easy to use and configure AS3 banner rotator, which means that you can “rotate” (automatically or not) a gallery of images or swf inside its content as in a slideshow.

[AS3 – swf: Flash player 9 – fla: Flash CS3 ]

interface styles


  • CUSTOMIZABLE and fully XML driven
  • Support for JPEG, GIF, PNG and SWF—all with dynamic resizing (to “fill” or “fit” or “no resize”)
  • Perfect for ADVERTISING: smart random function with “fairness” check, passages option and history
  • AUDIO support: load an mp3 as global rotator background, or play single audio files for each different banner (with loop and delay settings)
  • FLUID LAYOUT support. Easy also to use the rotator at the size you want… no need to recompile the swf.
  • Fully configurable INTERFACE (visibility, position, spacing and auto hide) with: play/pause, next, prev, audio toggle and timer.
  • KEN BURNS effect (with zoom, panning direction and time)
  • 10 different transition effects!
  • Global VECTOR MASKS: you can mask your banners loading the masks from external swfs (with animation too)
  • Fully configurable CAPTIONS: set text (also with html formatting), fonts (embedded fonts support), color, transparency, shadow, padding, etc…
  • JAVASCRIPT CALLBACKS support, to control the rotator from an html page. ONLINE DEMO
  • OVERLAY layer (image or swf) above the banners, with the options to control its position, size and transparency, and to set a link with caption for it
  • Silent banners loading while showing, with preload
  • Runtime error check with messages: XML not found, banners not found and XML malformed
  • Detailed pdf manual and commented code
  • Usage examples included
