    Flash Help

    I have alot of pictures that I want to be in a Flash Slideshow. But I dont want to import every one of them individually. Instead I want to have them in folders, and I want Flash to pick them out of the folders, and show them in a slideshow form. Meaning, I want it timed between when it Changes the pictures that are shown. How can I do that? Please Help if that makes any since. Thanks

    There are two or three ways of doing this but none of them are easy

    1) Embed each image in a movie or movieclip and the call them when required. However this requires each image to be imported into flash and then exported within a movieclip or as it's own movie.

    2) Use Macromedia Generator which can dynamically create Flash files on the fly and there is an image object.

    3) Use server-side programming to dynamically generate the Flash movies.

    4) Wait for the Flash 6 plug-in to become widespread and use it's new functionality.
