Once you have finished creating your website on the Motionartist, create a swf file and save.

Start BV, click on the flash button and then right click and in properties, go to movie > browse and upload your swf file.

Save as the index page and publish.

Hope that helps!

Dil No, not even close!

You can embed Flash elements onto a BV page, but you need a page to be defined within the styles and HTML constructs that BV uses (HTML+CSS)....a Flash (.swf) file will not function as you described.

You would be better off using the underlaying HTML files of a Flash created page as a background (use the html index file), and then embedding the Flash elements themselves as independent objects upon the BV page proper (the flash header, slideshow, etc.). Each object is "attributed" to a "Flash Box" in BV, meaning you will associate each embedded 'object' to a single Falsh (.swf) file.
>> This is why Flash navigation will not work in BV created pages, and why the limitations of Flash become rather heady for the common User.

I don't mind being wrong, as that means I got a lot to learn LOL!

However, I used BV and motion artist to create: www.fuzedezign.com (http://www.fuzedezign.com).

I may have written the wrong instructions, but the site does work,...very well I might add!

Looking forward to learning more. And is there any way to add a swf music file to BV with an on/off button display?

If you don't mind larger and more clumsy "controls" you could convert it to a simple wav file (repeating or not) and embed it, and 'mask over' the larger controls leaving only the STOP button showing.

Again....can't "blend" foundations.....


MotionArtist v.3 is cool, but I am still a Flash-er to the bone!! http://www.vodahost.com/vodatalk/images/icons/icon10.gif

(My last Flash site (http://www.ProMediaUnlimited.com) .... have 4 more coming online this week!)

Great site!

I am new to Flash. I just have been designing websites for the last 2-3 months. I am quite busy already so it is good. Please keep me posted when the new sites are up!
