How To Make a Preloader – Actionscript 3.0


How To Make a Preloader – Actionscript 3.0

Check out this super easy to customize and edit preloader in flash! It is based on actionscript 3.0, simple to build and code, and even easier to edit! The beauty of this preloader is you can essentially create it one time and copy the vector graphics and coding to any flash project you are working on and WHAMMO! you have a nice preloader ready to go!

    Hi Brian,

    Your tutorials are great. Thank you very much for sharing your expertise with us. 
    I have made a preloader for my website as you described in the tutorial video, but when I play it back or simulate a downloan I see four little black dots light up (as if loading) and then a quick flash of the preloader_mc that we created. Then it jumps straight to the content of my website. Do you have any idea why this is happening and what I could do to make it load just like in your example?
    Thanks again!

    This is unreal good. But can you create ETA (time) to this loader?

    The dynamic text is not working. The fields are staying empty. What could it be? I have double checked everything.

    Don’t mind. I have already find the solution. I had to embed the font (all characters).

    Hey, I have a question. In the beginning of the video, you have already embedded a video. How exactly do you do that? And how would I do this if I were going to load a swf?

    I done everything you said but it give to me that error:

    Scene 1, Layer ‘actions’, Frame 1, Line 9 1119: Access of possibly undefined property bytesLoaded through a reference with static type Class.

    Any Solution.
