14. Content Movies

We use external movies for the content pages. This movies are loaded using buttons from the main movie. They are loaded over the content of the main movie so the main movie must have a special area designated for the external movie to avoid overlapping.

Open the file index.fla from template/flash.

Go to frame 50 in the Timeline and you can see that the main movie has an "empty" area in which the external movies will appear:

Now let's open the home.fla (template/flash) to see how it looks.

As you can see it looks a little bit strange with so much white space in the upper and left area but that's the way it should be.

The external movies must have the same dimensions with the main movie and the content to be placed at the exact position reserved for it in the main movie to avoid undesired overlapping. So be very attentive when you create the content pages to place the content in the correct area.
