[oops, turns out that -loop_count 1 seems not to work for ffmpeg for
swf, just for anim. gif]

Getting closer:

I hit on the .frame method of watching the frame count; the subordinate
animation is 160 frames, so I wait until frame 160 to do anything. Both
movies are at 25fps, this can be altered if necessary.

While the next page is loading, the animation starts repeating despite
telling the sprite to stop() (or unloadMovie()).

Is this a good solution? How can I get the sprite swf to freeze on its
last frame and not continue while the next page loads?


.flash filename="test1.swf" version=6 background=#87002F \
      bbox=468x600 fps=25 compress

  .box buttonbox color=#87002F height=600 width=468 fill=#87002F

  .sprite swf_movie
    .put buttonbox alpha=0%


  .button show
    .show buttonbox as=idle
    .show buttonbox as=shape
    .show buttonbox as=area
    .show buttonbox as=hover
    .show buttonbox as=pressed
      swf_movie.getURL("http://blah";, "_self");

  .frame 1
    .put swf_movie x=0 y=20
    .put show x=0 y=20 alpha=0%

  .frame 160
      _root.getURL("http://blah";, "_self");
