Need to have a flash revised, see it on our web site ([url removed, login to view]) the history timeline slides back and forth as you mouse over it or click on the click handle next to the year and can grab it and then manually slide it.
I want to put the text behind an image of a slide rule (have a graphic to use - unless you have a better one) and in the blank area on the slide rule will have the text display (would like two at a time) then have a way for it to slide (maybe a place to click on the roll it or slide it left and right - as I sowed in the mockup image, click on the double red arrows to move in either direction) also want the year to display on the top of the slide rule bar and this to slide and change with the text below (year also shown in mockup image). Need a way to update and add to the text (XML file or JS file which is editable and adds text and years on to the flash). Want the slide rule to be the lone image to see so the outside shading or surrounding area to be transparent.
Want to flash to be large enough and clear enough on a 1024x768 display so the slide rule should be about 4" or 400px tall maybe.
I need this really fast - would like to have a complete project by Sunday night if possible.
Note: The slide rule and center piece will stay still and only the text inside the open area on the slide rule will move as it slides into view and out of view, none of the slide rule or image will move (the text simply slides behind and goes into and out of view as the desired year is reached).
