as in my previous post im a compleate begginer in Flash and AC3. You may say that i heard about them only. So now im making my hard steps throug that field, while learning it in fast forward ;) I almost got all I need to create some "simple" CG for basic Event production. The last element is the scoreboard - but dynamic one.
For example i got 50 contestants. So i create Flash Template with 10 rows, each containg fileds: Number (fixed value from 1 to 10 - can be static or dynamic), contestant Name, Contestant Club Name, contestant Time, contestant Point.
my idea was to create Excel spreadsheet, with table with that fields. After that i could sort players vs. time/points quickly end export it to xml file, so the Flash template could read from xml file
Thats the teory. What about practic - i found that post: http://casparcg.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=1560
, but unfortnetly my lack of knowlage stops me there. Need a little help step by step.
1) what should be the structure of XML file
2) in the post i've linked there are to first snipets of code - where i should put them in Flash
Basicly, i could learn by reverse egeniring the flash tempte,but unortunetly all the links to dropbox from old thread are dead.
Mayby someone could send me an example template, that just read 2 values from xml so i could work it out? or if you could explain me step by step how to build that template? I'll be very grateful for your help
