Frame1 is blank but its size is = half the SWF
on May 9, 2008 at 4:03:48 pm

I am having an issue with adding a preloader to my site, the issue is that the frames I put the preloader on are so large that it takes a while to download the preloader. I know this problem has been widely discussed on this forum, my issue takes a slight turn away from what I have read here previously. so I have all my content on frame2 and frame1 is for the preloader, even though frame1 is blank it still has a size that is equal to almost half of the entire SWF. Why is half the content being loaded on the first frame when it is a blank key frame?

I am fairly new to Flash CS3, I'm probably doing something wrong. Any thoughts/suggestions are greatly appreciated.

Thanks,
-Justin

Are you using any components, or Linked Movieclips?

In your library do you have anything set to export on the first frame?

Thanks for your response.

Nothing linked, and I'm not sure what it means to have something export on frame1.

However I did just figure out a way to make this work. Instead of having my preloader on frame1 and the MC containing the rest of my content on the remaining frames, I published my content to a SWF and then used the loader function with the prelaoder to load the external SWF. I would guess that is the prefered method anyway.

Thanks Again,
-Justin
