The easy way to produce Flash banners

3. Movies management, Movies Modifier, MultiPicSWF Generation

1) As the result of the above recording operations, movies were produced. The movies recorded the real-time mouse movements and zoom rates for the pictures. Now let's have a look on these movies.

2) Click the Picture Movies button, which is the 4th toolbar button. Now you can find all the movies you previously recorded in dynamical displaying state. In fact, no matter whether you produced flash files or not, or no matter whether you recorded or not, as long as in the previous operations you have got a picture into dynamical displaying state and then exit (you may use Esc for exit), a movie will be produced there for the picture, thus for a single picture there may be different movies.

3) Here we could also click once to watch original picture, click twice to watch the picture in full screen, and click the third time to watch the picture dynamically.

4) Here in all the three states you can wheel to switch the target pictures being watched.

5) Here what you see is the results of your previous recording operations. You can record again for individual pictures here, modifying to get better recording results. That's why here this dynamical window is called movies "Modifier".

6) The purpose of keeping the recorded movies here is for generating multiple-picture-flash. How?

7) By clicking the right button of the mouse on the blank area, a context menu occurs, choose the MultiPicSWF command from the menu, a Notice for MultiPicSWF dialog will pop up, it says the width and height of the first picture is very important, it determines the width and height of the resulting flash SWF file.

8) For the time being let's click No button canceling the dialog. Click the first picture to judge whether the original dimension of the picture is what we desired. It might be possible you want a web page flash, a flash banner, or just want to output a multiple picture flash and then turn it into a screen saver; so dimensions will be deferent according to the actual purpose. Here we suppose that the dimension of the first picture is not what we want, so we need to choose another picture to replace it after recording.

9) Of cause you can do that. Movies are arranged sequentially according to the recording operation sequence. Thus usually newly recorded movie shall be arranged as the last one in the Picture Moves interface. Now that we want a newly generated movie goes to the front end, we should click the right button of the mouse on the first movie picture, and choose from the context menu Insert Before or Replaceable command.

10) Then click the Double Middle toolbar button (the 2nd). Here you should prepare a picture with satisfactory dimension by using the Snap Region menu command or other commands, and then doing the recording routines. Now the movie you recorded will go to the front end according to your settings made in the last step. It will replace the first movie if you previously had chosen Replaceable command, or goes into the position in front of the first movie if you previously had chosen Insert Before command.

11) Well, now we can output multiple picture flash. Click the Picture Movies tool button. Check and make sure the first movie picture indeed the correct dimension. Click the right button of the mouse on the blank area, and choose in the context menu MultiPicSWF command and click the Yes button on the pop up dialog.

12) Wait for a little while, ... the software is processing the conversion, please don't disturb... well, eventually the Sightline Media Flash dialog window occurred again. It's now a multi-picture flash, playing multiple pictures one by one.

It should be quite easy to set it as a screen saver. There are other relevant operations such as saving movies into the storage, enabling embed codes etc., we won't discuss them in detail now, otherwise the instruction file will become too large to read. We guess, however, the clever users could learn about it without teaching.
