The Flash Builder has a feature called Movie Presets that lets you set a defined preset (or a group of settings) to all the flash movie items. While we are working on making the Movie Presets more robust, you'll for now find only two basic presets - Slideshow and Simple Fade. In the article, we'll talk about Simple Fade, which as the name suggests, sets a Simple Fade for the In Effect and the Out Effect for all the items. To access Movie Presets, click the Presets button on the left panel. Then click the Movie Presets option The Movie Presets will expand to reveal the two options - Slideshow and Simple Fading. Click the Simple Fading button
You'll see a dialog box that asks if you wish to apply the Simple Fade. Click Yes
All the flash movie items's In Effect and Out Effect settings should now be reset to Simple Fade.
I hope you find this setting useful. We do admit that there is a lot of work to be done on Movie Preset. We could allow saving a lot more options as Preset at a global level which you may apply on every other flash movie.
That's it for now, have a good weekend and Happy Easter to all our customers.
