Overview of Scenes

A scene is sometimes used to hold a preloader while the rest of the site is contained in another scene or multiple scenes. Scenes are beneficial when you need to break a very large Flash movie into manageable parts. For instance, scenes can be used to contain the information that makes up each page of a Web site: a Company Information page, a Services page, or a Contact Us page. In the case of a preloader, the preloader functionality and its animation can be a held in one scene while the rest of the movie is held in another scene. In either example, each scene would contain the images and functionality for that page or part of the site. This enables a very large site to be broken into its individual areas or pages, making it easier to work with each individual area.

By default, when you create a new movie, you are in Scene 1. Scene 1 is listed on a tab in the upper-left corner of the Stage. Other scenes can be added to a movie by selecting Insert, Scene. When a new scene is created, the Scene 1 tab in the upper-left corner of the Stage changes to Scene 2 (see Figure 9.6). The Timeline and Stage for this new scene are cleared and ready for you to create the new scene content. Using the Timeline and Stage, you can create the next part of the movie that you want represented in Scene 2.
