Hahaha, its kinda funny I ran across this post...
My computer died on me two weeks ago, so I haven't been able to check my email since then to be able to reply to you, sorry about that.
Heres how I made that Flash VR rotator:
- I rendered out 30 frames of the model rotating 360 degrees from 3ds max (linear interpolation).
- Brought them into the flash timeline and placed each frame onto the timeline sequentially.
- ActionScripted the buttons in Flash to advance forwards and backwards through the timeline, either one-by-one using the arrow buttons, or rapidly using the circular buttons.
I'm not sure what the exact code is that I actionscripted in flash off the top of my head, my files are all backed up on CD's right now and I'm still trying to recover everything, but I can tell you that it was all very basic, simple coding: "Play", "Stop", "NextFrame", "Goto" commands - I'm pretty much a very basic flash user.
I hope this helps, I'll try to give you more info when I get my computer back online.

It took me forever to make it work...

Let me know what you think..
Sorry I used your pics for the arrows and all. I jsut wanted to know if I could make this work at all. I am not a flash person. But I think its time I learned a little bit at least. Thanks....
