I've just start working on a project whereby the site will be entirely in flash, have a nav panel down one side, and a content panel down the other. I want some subtle animations on the content as each page is selected (either scroll or fade out) but as each page will have a different background, I'm not sure what the best way to do this is.

My current thinking, would be to put all the 'pages' in one movie clip, animated with each having a fadein, then stop, then a fade out.

When a link is pressed, it would play until it encounters a 'stop' (hence, the fadeout frames), then jump to the fade in animation for the link that was clicked.

With being new to Flash though, I just thought a) I'd check to see if this is the given way to do this, or if there is a better, standard way, and :) if anyone can give me any tips on coding it. I would imagine it would be onPress(function), then the two instructions?.

Thanks for any help anyone can offer, it really is very much appreciated,

Thanks, Dan
