How to get rid of loading text and bar?

Post by rumormill » Thu Feb 14, 2008 3:44 am

Why won't the loading text and bar disappear after my SWF has 100 percent loaded?

*UPDATE: We've increased the preview tile quality, and the "cubic" look is now gone. But it still appears to not load completely on the first test. But when we simulate download in Flash (T1), it loads perfectly. Weird, right?! Loading bar and text still not disappearing.


Okay, here is the project. Please click on the red flag on hole no. 1 to see the fuzzy panorama and loading bar that stays on the panorama, even though it appears to be fully loaded:

We have the panorama loading into an empty movie clip. We're using Flash 8 on Mac OSX, and viewing it in Safari.

Any help would be MUCH appreciated.

Hi rumormill.

Ok, I borrowed a cached file from your website for testing...

panohole1.swf 914kb

Using my stand alone debug version of Flash viewer, I looked to see if panohole1.swf loaded properly by itself. It did. The loader bar disappeared.

Noticed that panohole1.swf seemed to be embedded in FLASH application.

I know very little Flash programming, but is the panohole1.swf on a movie track all by itself? Does it have a stop frame? If so maybe you might need to move the stop frame few more frames to the right.. allowing the preloader to complete loading.

Just a wild guess.

By the way.. nice real movie with the fellow who talks about the course.

Thank you for the compliment! I really enjoy the panoramas and hotspots on your Web site, too!

It seems the problem is pulling the external SWF file into an empty movie clip within Flash. I'm wondering if it's possible that the code produced by the latest version of the pano2vr does not like Flash 8 or AS2?
