Chapter 22. Creating and Exchanging Your... > Creating Your Own Smart Clip

Creating Your Own Smart Clip

One possibility would be to create a Smart Clip that mimics a Microsoft PowerPoint presentation. How could you build a movie clip that would reveal a new bulleted point every time you press a key on the keyboard? The easiest way to approach this would be to embed a bullet point and a corresponding text field in a movie clip. You then can use the attachMovie method to add additional movie clips to the Stage.

Building a Base Clip

You need to get this concept working before you can convert it to a Smart Clip. The next exercise walks you through the complete process. Why make you complete the whole process? You’ll never understand the distinction between a movie clip and a Smart Clip if you don’t build a Smart Clip from scratch. This is going to take a while, so go get some coffee now.
