    loadmovie

    Each page in my flash site has its own SWF file. At the present, I use:
    loadMovie ("file.swf", 0);

    What I would like to happen, can be seen on the web site: http://www.sony.jp/products/headphone/index.html

    How can you get an external SWF file to scroll up the screen (and the existing one to scroll off screen to) ?

    Cheers!

    You're using wrong method.

    loadMovieNum is used to load file.swf into level 0. If you use loadMovie, then you specify file loading into object (loadMovie("file.swf","_root.myMovieClip")

    I would wager that that is not what's happening, it merely looks that way.

    Each new swf that is loaded in has a transition the makes it look like the content is scrolling in, and then calls a transition in the previous swf that looks like its scrolling out.

    not sure if I said the above well enough for you to understand, but that's my bet.

    Success! Managed to get my head around this eventually, thanks for your pointers. I never managed to work out if you can control external swf files (which scene they are playing, etc.).
