View Full Version : Movie effect

I want to have a 'movie' of a room that appears to pan from one side to the other. In reality this is just a still photo that moves behind a fixed 'window' to give the impression of the camera panning.
The canvas size (in FW4) is smaller than the image, creating the effect of the window thorough which the image is viewed as it (apparently) pans from one side to the other.

In FW4 I have tweened the first and last positions. This works fine when replayed in FW.

Here's where I am lost.

I tried exporting the file as a DW library item, which I can then place in my DW page. However, I have no idea how to get the 'movie' to play when previewed in a browser.

Any ideas?

Thanks,

Coober

To better understand what I mean, take a look at this site:

After the map disappears, the room seems to pan from left to right.

That website uses Flash (swf file) to achieve this. It's pretty easy to do in Flash (if you have experience with it) and much, much more reliable than relying on crossbrowser support for javascript etc, which I'm assuming FW would do.
