Looking for some artistic input in preparing a Flash component that loads 9 images for displaying 3 at a time, one clear image in the centre with a faded image either side. Clicking or hovering the mouse over the left image moves the images right to display the left image clear and in the centre, clicking/hovering over the right image moves the images left on a ‘revolving wheel’ style. The ‘revolving wheel’ shall refresh every 10 seconds, ie move one image to the left. Hovering over the central image shall pause the refresh until next click/hover on left or right image, clicking on the central image shall transfer the user to another page. Each image shall display a title caption below.
The Flash component shall load the image files as specified in either a text or xml configuration file (please advise on the best option). The configuration file shall specify the image file names for loading, a title caption per image, a transfer url per image, and the refresh rate (unless refresh rate can be specified in the page code).
The configuration file shall allow future flexibility in the number of images loaded, their file names, title captions, the redirect url, and refresh rate.
Please suggest any artistic alternatives you may have eg display all images as thumbnails along the bottom, where hovering over a thumbnail loads the selected image full size above.
Two milestone payments will be setup for the successful bidder, the first to be released on the supply of the first working version of the SWF file and a demo html page, the second to be released after receipt of final Client comments and incorporation of any small changes required and supply of updated SWF file together with the ActionScript FLA file.
This project is very similar to another I've posted at [url removed, login to view] Those who can offer a more economical price for doing both projects will be given priority consideration.
