If a buyers uses a file in the same project but in two different ways on two different web pages would they be required to purchase the file twice?
Good work!Thanks! I’m wondering if I should add support for video now or wait and see how the file sells and make a version 2…
Video would be cool, also how easy for the buyer is it to customize the size of the thumbnails? so if i wanted to make them like 10% of the size to creat a type of mosaic effect?
Just a case of modifying the clip, or will it require a complete overhaul of the code?
It’s driven by XML and the you set a “target width/height” for your thumbs. The reason why it’s “target” is it can never be exact since the thumb size adjusts slightly based on the monitor size ensuring that they all fit on the screen.
The challenge I found with the file is the rollover tweens. Tweener didn’t do the job so I had to use TweenLite. So the smaller the thumbs, the more tweens would fire and performance would decrease. This wouldn’t be a problem unless your thumbs were really small but if you took out the image scaling in the tweens performance should be just fine.
As far as creating a mosaic picture, it might be tough because the file reads in the thumbs and then either repeats them to fill the screen or dumps extra ones if they’re not needed so you’d always have a different look depending on the monitor size. Also, the Array gets randomized but that would be easy to take out.
I’ve been thinking about Mark’s suggestion above and I’m not sure I can do it as I’m not quite a Flash Jedi yet. I’m still going to try it though at my leisure because I love a challenge!
Thanks for the links! Emroni, love your new icon!
How do you define a “business template” .. ?
Many of the templates here are very stylish/colorful with sometimes quick transitions. A business template I’d be interested in would be clean with a white based background, have simple navigation, have elegant/slower transitions and possibly even be non-liquid.

Is this book out yet? I’d like to read it.
Cracker I’m really loving this file! Got a suggestion…rather than using a lightbox type effect to open the images, why not make it just grow and push all other thumbs, and grow to its full size preview?
Mark that would be very cool! I’m going to see if I can pull it off
I’m looking for some cool Flash blogs to follow. What do you read? (Besides the wonderful blog here at FlashDen )
Thanks! I’m wondering if I should add support for video now or wait and see how the file sells and make a version 2…

Can’t you test on Safari for PC? Or does it render differently to Safari Mac?
The problem is that CSS hacks don’t work the same for the Windows Safari as they do for the Mac version. So for testing I like to make sure I’m seeing what the client will be seeing. I know we shouldn’t use hacks but sometimes you just need one
