DANGER WILL ROBINSON DANGER!!! This site is now read only. It is no longer maintained. It is provided for historical purposes only.
In the spirit of the “Preloader Gallery” we recently featured, I thought it would be nice to share a list of resources for Flash developers to aid their search for high quality preloader source code and ideas. Most of the resources are “artist” friendly, so tweener-types will be fine with these resources …
This site provides a really nice and easy to follow tutorial on how to create various types of Flash preloaders. The examples provided are AS2, but many people are still coding for Flash 8 these days.
Smashing Magazine’s Preloader Showcase
A very nice collection of creative examples, no code examples but a great place to go for creative inspiration.
Progression Animation Sample
Flashfridge has another nice AS2 example on how to build a preloader that uses an animation. For instance you could have a bucket filling with water for a preloader.
AS3 Apple Style Loader
If you dig the Apple loader, this is a hand bit of AS3 loader code:
Very simple AS3 Preloader Code
Even I understand how to use this AS3 code (I’m an artist dude!)
