Splash Screen when Loading?

Fri Sep 02, 2011 4:36 pm

Hey Gang,

I'd like to do a "Splash Screen" when our channel is loading, and really dig what Crackle has done. Anyone have some insight as to what to look at to do this?

Here is a crappy image I shot with my iPhone of what Crackles looks like when the app is loading

How did they do this?

Thanks!
Bud

Lots of channels do that or something similar. It's an image displayed on a roImageCanvas.

to make it even more fun, you can fade in the graphic image, or at least create the illusion that it is fading in.

Here's some sample code for how I did the splash screen for MainSqueeze using the channel icon: viewtopic.php?f=34&t=33895&p=216153#p216158
