In my previous Flash preloader tutorial  I showed you how to develop preloaders for you applications and I explained its code to you. In this tutorial I will focus on the design part of the preloaders. I will show you how to make a good looking circular preloader so that you may understand how to put the code of the previous tutorial in the skin of a good looking preloader.

Lets start by creating a new Flash ActionScript 3.0 application. Create a new movieclip by pressing ctrl+F8. We will make the animation of the preloader in this movieclip.

Flash Preloader Tutorial

Tue, 10/25/2011 - 17:04 — julie

Most of the flash applications on the internet are very rich in content and this makes their file size quite large as compared to other components in a website. If a user visits a webpage with some heavy flash content then it might take some time before the flash components actually appears. This can be disastrous because it might make users navigate away from the site even before they see it. To solve this problem we make use of preloaders. A preloader is light weight and it appears on screen quickly and shows the user how much of the flash content has been loaded. By making interesting and interactive preloaders, developers can make the users wait on the website long enough for the flash content to be completely loaded.

Before we start making the Flash preloader, I want you to know that you need to have basic flash knowledge and a little bit of know-how of ActionScript 3.0 in order to understand this tutorial.
