Circular Loaders like on macromedia website - Macromedia Flash Sitedesign

This has probably been asked before a lot of times, but I couldn't find anything on the forums. My excuses for that. I'm fairly new to (more advanced) Flash development. How or where do I get these small circular "loading indicators" that are used all over the Macromedia websites.

    Default Circular Loaders like on macromedia website

    This has probably been asked before a lot of times, but I couldn't find anything on the forums. My excuses for that. I'm fairly new to (more advanced) Flash development.

    How or where do I get these small circular "loading indicators" that are used all over the Macromedia websites. (I don't call them progress bars, because they don't show you the exact progress, they just indicate a movie is being loaded.)

    Is this a functionality already included within the loader component (and I just can't see it because the loader loads the local movies too quickly) or some other component, class or AS function in FlashMX2004? Or is it something else?

    Please give me some pointers how I can use this in my Flash apps or where to get it.

    Thanks a lot in advance!!

    Default Re: Circular Loaders like on macromedia website

    well, what i do, and it's kin of cheat but oh well. I got a preloader componant (from a flash course but u can get them from anywhere on the web) which looks really ordinary, so i make its alpha value to 0, then i just draw a little movie in the middle of the screen in the first frame (draw a picture then make it a movie click and edit it within the movie clip) so i you want the circle thing, just do that and draw a cirlc the i guess, im not sure tho, have a mask or somthing go over it. but yeah, go to [url]www.flashkit.com[/url] and it wil give you a few tutorials

    Hope I helped alittle bit
