I would like some help with creating an animated global nav. using flash. I looked around on google for a while and didn't find anything this specific. Anyone have a flash project they could send me so I could take a look at how you put it together? I am trying to create invisible buttons over a movie clip of the animation, but no luck so far. I can't figure out how to get a movie into the button? I am probably doing this all wrong, the provided tutorials only cover very basic things, already read them. I am familiar with the program because I have taken a course on after effects and illustrator. The programs have lots in common (AE&Illustrator vs. Flash). If you have any good tutorials on this thats cool too.

thanks in advance

Cory

Edit: Attached is just a mock up to give you an idea of what I want. I exported a low quality GIF. Click on it to view the looping animation.

and

you will get more help and more tutorials on a flash specific board... check out kirupa's forums and also http://studiowhiz.com 's forums. both are pretty great. also, flash has the best built in help system of any application i have ever experienced, so you may not even have to hit the boards or external tutorials.
thanks a lot
