hi,
im looking to do a website intro in jscript and/or dhtml,

but its should work like this...

1. an audio loop is loaded which keeps looping throughout the intro.

2 1st animated gif is loaded with another small audio clip.

3.AFTER both the audio clip and the gif are loaded,the gif slides in from a corner and the audio clip plays(on top of the loop audio clip...ie both are heard).

4 the audio clip finishes but the gif keeps animating TILL
the next audio clip and gif are loaded,then the 1st gif slides out and 2nd slides in with the second audio clip...
then it keep going like this till the end.
(all this while the 1st audio loops is still playing)


the purpose of this is to keep the long intro running without
a stop but the whole intro isnt loaded at once so the user is not shown the LOADING indicator.

any help appreciated

This can be done, but will take some time to code. I suggest you look at this website (Sections 3 & 4) for sound.
