Project Description

Hey all,

We currently have a javascript moving banner but it will work better if it is flash. Essentially this project involves converting it to flash and then adding an option to play a flash video in in the centre of the banner when on the home page.

The project looks long because I have explained it in detail - this will actually make it easier for you to do!

Feel free to integrate open-source flash video projects, and if you think you can do it slightly differently to reduce costs, feel free to make a suggestion in a PMB. I'd rather it is done this way though.

The most important thing is price, then turnaround time. Examples of previous work are nice but not essential.

Project overview

- Look at [url removed, login to view]
- Convert the javascript banner to flash

[ The background color of the flash version should match the background colour of the page, the total banner should be as wide as the two lines above and below it on the javascript version and those lines need to be part of the banner and coloured black]

- Dynamically load pictures from files on server
- Create a flash video player that is the same size as the central picture and loads in its place (instead of the picture) when the user is on the home page
- All of the pictures and the main video will be 200 px height and 356 px width

Specific requirements

- When I click on the links on the side, I should see the relevant flash animation (feel free to give me javascript code to replace those links)
- Add the text over the loaded image as defined in a config file, using the same font, colour and size as in the javascript version
- For the video player, ensure it shows the first frame of the video, and has a semi-transparent 'play video' triangle in the centre, and a smaller 'expand' link underneath
- The 'expand' link must open a bigger version of the video in a Lightbox format (and load a different FLV file which will be bigger) with a clear close button
- The video player must not affect any of the core functionality of the menu, so it should act like a picture if the mouse travels elsewhere
- Similarly the text overlay should still be used, but should disappear (fade out) when the video is playing and fade in when it is paused or stops
- The video player must be modular and it must be relatively easy to use in place of other pictures in the future - please include a very brief overview of how to do this

- All the source files will be required
- You should be generally reachable on MSN / Jabber and Skype if possible

Payment details

- It is very important that this project is completed properly as it will form a key part of the website and client impressions
- But I will be available to contact at any time for clarification to make sure you do it right and don't waste time
- If you keep the latest version online I will check it regularly and give you feedback

- Payment will be structured as follows:

- On selection, 20% of the bid will added to escrow

- Once the first part of the project is complete (ie, everything except the video player), another 30% will added to escrow and the first 20% will be deposited. Source files so far will then be required.

- Once the second part is done, the remaining 50% will be added to escrow

- Once the final source files have been sent and checked and tested thoroughly, all of the rest of the money will be deposited

- This is to protect both of us. Feedback will be exchanged straight after payment
