Howto

Let's say you have got a Flash project with the stage dimensions 800x600 pixels. Now you want to add the branding01 logo in the upper right corner. Follow the steps below to implement the logo or download the example file.

  1. Create a new (top) layer in your timeline and change the name to branding;
  2. Download our example file, extract the contents and open example.fla. In the Library Cmd+L you'll see a brandingXX_def MovieClip (XX represents a number) and the branding folders, one for each branding logo.
  3. Select the branding01_def MovieClip and the folder for the logo you want to implement, for example branding01;
  4. Go to your own Flash project file and paste the copied items to your Library Cmd+L;
  5. Insert branding01_def into your stage, give it the instance name branding_def and scale/move it to the right size/position (remember the width and height, you'll need them in step 13);
  6. With the MovieClip still selected (if not, select it in your stage), choose ModifyConvert to Symbol (F8 or rightclick › Convert to Symbol);
  7. Now give your symbol a name (for example branding) and select Movie Clip as Type;
  8. In your Library you will see the new MovieClip item;
  9. Double-click on your symbol in the stage, you will enter the edit mode for your Movie Clip;
  10. Select the one and only keyframe on your timeline;
  11. Open the Action box Option+F9 so we can enter some ActionScript 3 to load the branding logo;
  12. Copy and paste the code from below;
  13. If you want different logo dimensions you can change the var w and var h values in the top of the code. Make sure you keep the right aspect ratio (shown below the logo examples on top of this page). The values must match the width and height of the MovieClip inserted in step 5;
  14. Test your movie by choosing ControlTest Movie Cmd+Return from the menu.

ActionScript 3 code

In some cases you'll have to import the needed Flash packages. It might also be necessary to allow our domain inside your actions panel. The code below shows how to implement both parts. Just put the code before the code shown above.
