    Yo there!

    Just been tweaking your 3D carousel and having couple of problems… with changing background colour (tried changing from black to white etc, even though is it possible to have a transparent background or load an image as the backdrop?), removing the scrollbar – managed to change the size and opacity to hide it, however it’s still there! and change the Carousel size to 1024(or smaller)x400. Not sure why these changes don’t make any effect.

    Look forward to your reply

    Thanks a lot. But I would like to use this carrousel as a menu in my web site and I need to be able to see the different web pages inside of the lightbox and the question 19 of the FAQ area doesn’t answer that. In fact, the two examples it brings only show pictures, not web pages or videos or anything else related to a web site. I just need to know if it is possible to do this in order to buy the commercial license. Thanks again for your attention.

    • Flashtuning

      I don’t think you can do this with lightbox ( loading web pages ). You can use the carousel as a menu like any other flash menu used on a website and when clicking on a carousel image you can simply load an html page, but lightbox has a different purpose not for loading html pages of a website.

  3. flozig

    Hi. I just want to know if the images of this carrousel can be viewed through a lightbox and (given this is the case) if it is possible to see a web page inside of the lightbox once it is displayed in its bigger size in the center of the page. Thanks in advance.

    • Flashtuning


      You can simply download the free version of the product by following the free download link and test it on your own by following the lightbox step by step guide -> question number 19 from the FAQ area on our site.

    @Jeff: This question was already answered in a previous comment ( check the above comments ).

    • Jeff H

      Don’t you just hate when people ask repetive questions?….Sorry! Missed that the first time through.

      Just a heads up. I noticed a possible bug. If you look at example 4, the images swap the one that is in front as it turns the corner towards the back of the carousel. I tried it on the demo version on my site, and found that it only happens when the images are bigger or when there are a lot of them–i.e. when the are a bit crowded.

      By the way, really impressive set of tools. The ratings on wordpress don’t do you justice.

  5. Jeff H

    I am interested in installing this on my site–looks perfect with one exception.
    I can’t figrue out how to change the background color. Is that something I can do from the free version? If not, how hard is it to do in the full version? I want to know if it will work before I buy.

  6. Bill

    Is it possible to stop the images from moving when the image is mouseover’d? Or to bring the image to the front, and keep it there? It goes to fast for something I would like to use it for. I would like to have a visitor see an image, mouse over it and have that image comes to the front, through animation then stop. Or when the image is cycling in the front, stop when mouse over’d

    • Flashtuning Support


      Yes it’s possible to stop an image on mouseover. You have the “stopOnHover” parameter in the xml file. Take a look at example 2 and 3 for the effect. As for image animation comes in front, will consider that for a future update.

      Thank you for your interest.

    I have just purchased the full package because I love your plugins. But I have a question:
    I am using the product in WordPress. When I extract the files and install them in the plugin folder I don’t see the settings menu within my Dashboard. How can I install/view it?

    with kind regards,
    Jeroen Backx

    • Flashtuning Support


      There isn’t a visual settings menu. You have to enter /wp-content/flashtuning/xtreme-3d-carousel directory (located on your server where the WordPress is installed) where you put the executable files and modify carousel-settings.xml (general carousel parameters) and carousel-content.xml (individual carousel items parameters)according to your needs. In the carousel package are 4 demos. If one of them fits your requirements copy the xml files from there to wp-content/flashtuning/xtreme-3d-carousel.

      If you have future questions feel free to ask.

      • Jeroen Backx


        in according to your previous comment: why does there come with the free wordpress plugin a screenshot of a settingspage?
        You also advertise with a fullscreen preview where it’s very easy to change the settings…
        I don’t have a lot of knowlegde to change the settings in the html, xml, or where ever. where do i place a link to a picture? how can i change the ‘speed’ of the rotation? where do i remove the centerlogo? etc. etc.
        $69 is lot of money to throw away…

        kind regards

          An xml file is a structured data source in the form of a text file.
          Every tag means something (and most should be commented with details regarding their values/effect).

          To place your own pictures, go to the content xml file. Each menuItem tag represents an image/slide. The src attribute inside the media tag represents the path to the picture. You can delete (to remove images) or copy/paste menuItem tags(to add more images).

          Likewise, there is a logo tag inside the content xml file. To remove the logo, remove the tag.

          The speed is controlled by parameters like baseSpeed or maxSpeed inside the settings xml file.

          It’s not really that difficult, and you can always drop us an email if you have specific questions.

          The fullscreen preview is just a way to demo some of the features of the component.

    Thank you for your interest.

    1. It works like any other website having Flash elements. You can download and try the free version.

    2. Yes the package includes the source code and any other necessary files.


  9. Naveen Urma

    I am planning to buy the component but only two questions come in my mind:

    1. Are there any problems expected when this component is used with SharePoint site?

    2. Does the package include complete source code i.e. FLA files etc.

  10. Shobhit Gupta`

    How can i change the background colour

    • Flashtuning Support

      Open the index.html from the download package and there is the following code for embeding the swf file. Go to bgcolor property and change with the color you want.

      <script language="javascript">
      	if (AC_FL_RunContent == 0) {
      		alert("This page requires AC_RunActiveContent.js.");
      	} else {
      			'codebase', 'http://download.macromedia.com/pub/shockwave/cabs/flash/swflash.cab#version=9,0,0,0',
      			'width', '600',
      			'height', '600',
      			'src', 'carousel',
      			'quality', 'high',
      			'pluginspage', 'http://www.macromedia.com/go/getflashplayer',
      			'align', 'middle',
      			'play', 'true',
      			'loop', 'true',
      			'scale', 'showall',
      			'wmode', 'window',
      			'devicefont', 'false',
      			'id', 'carousel',
      			'bgcolor', '#000000', //HERE CHANGE THE COLOR
      			'name', 'carousel',
      			'menu', 'false',
      			'allowFullScreen', 'false',
      			'movie', 'carousel',
      			'salign', ''
      			); //end AC code

    In relation to the wordpress plugin please could you elaborate on the code required to place the swf in a page.

    “Insert the swf into post or page using this tag: [xtreme-carousel]. The default values for width and height are 600 400. If you want other values write the width and height attributes into the tag like so: [xtreme-carousel width=”yourvalue” height=”yourvalue”] ”

    Please could you provide an example/template of the code using the [xtreme-carousel] tag.

    Thank you

    • Flashtuning Support


      If you followed the instructions and put the carousel files under wp-content/flashtuning/xtreme-3d-carousel folder, install and activate the xtreme-3d-carousel plugin, all you have to do is open a new post and paste this tag [xtreme-carousel] in the editor (you don’t have to use any other code). Save the post, than go to view it. The carousel should appear there.

      All the best,
      FlashTuning Support

  12. flozig

    As long as I can see, all of this must be done with the Adobe Flash CS3 or CS4. Could it also be donde with the Dreamweaver web editor? I’m not well trained in using Adobe Flash.
    I guess it is what it means when it refers to the basic integration.

    Thanks again

    • Flashtuning Support

      In the archive file is an index.html file. There is the following code to embed the swf file. So copy this code in your html page and make sure to modify the path to the location where you put the swf file. The Adobe Flash can generate this code automatically for you, but it’s not a must to use Flash.

      <object classid="clsid:d27cdb6e-ae6d-11cf-96b8-444553540000" codebase="http://download.macromedia.com/pub/shockwave/cabs/flash/swflash.cab#version=9,0,0,0" width="595" height="500" id="carousel" align="middle">
      <param name="allowScriptAccess" value="sameDomain" />
      <param name="allowFullScreen" value="false" />
      <param name="movie" value="YOUR_SWF_FILE.swf" />
      <param name="quality" value="high" />
      <param name="bgcolor" value="#cccccc" />
      <embed src="YOUR_SWF_FILE.swf" quality="high" bgcolor="#cccccc" width="595" height="500" name="carousel" align="middle" allowScriptAccess="sameDomain" allowFullScreen="false" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" pluginspage="http://www.macromedia.com/go/getflashplayer" />

      Change the YOUR_SWF_FILE.swf with the right location and the right name of yours swf file.

  13. flozig

    Hi. I want to use this application in my website but don’t know exactly how “to insert the Carousel Menu SWF inside the HTML page(s)” of my site, as it says above in the features. Is it enough if I only past it into a table of my html page? Thanks in advance.

  14. Gareth Simpson

    I have just purchased the X-Treme 3D Carousel Menu XML. I have three questions:
    (1) I am using the product in WordPress. I cannot see the Carousel Settings menu within my Dashboard. How can I install/view it?
    (2) I have the carousel working within a page. I would however like to put it within the Header. What code can I use for this?
    (3) The default background for the carousel is black. Where do I change this to white?
    Many thanks…

  15. Tyler Lowe

    How do I change the height of swf file? My carousel is 850 x 350 and the additional white space around the images looks bad. I want to crop the overall swf size so it looks better.

    • Flashtuning Support


      If you embed the swf with the object tag, check for height attribute and change the value there. Also in the carousel-settings.xml you have a totalHeight attribute that will change the height inside the swf file.

      All the best,
      FlashTuning Support

  16. Dave D.

    I’m attempting to edit the Action script file so that the images scale up (zoom in) when you hover over them, I’d like for them to remain at their Min Height/Min Width without a mouse event. It looks like zooming is supported but when I change the itemMaxWidth/itemMaxHeight properties it just scales all of the images in accordance with the itemMax settings with no hover zooming. The effect I’m shooting for is like the FTZoomMenu, only with a carousel rather than an in-line layout.

    thanks in advance!

    • FlashTuning Support


      The min/max Width/Height properties relate only to the sizes displayed when the images is in the foreground (max) or background (min).

      To get the images to zoom in when hovered over, you will need to edit the code inside the menuCarouselItemMC (add a function that does the zooming – note that you also need to remember their original sizes) and carouselMenuMC (add event handling for hovering).

      Email me at support [at] flashtuning [dot] net if you have more questions.

    How this works under wordpress? Thanks.

  18. Jose Luis Bellón

    Estoy utilizando flash cs4 y deseo incorporar carousel.swf a mi propio.swf, realizo la siguiente tarea

    var loader:Loader = new Loader();
    var req:URLRequest = new URLRequest(“./carousel/carousel.swf”);


    obtengo el siguiente error?
    TypeError: Error #1009: No se puede acceder a una propiedad o a un método de una referencia a un objeto nulo.
    at carousel_fla::MainTimeline/p¥ߑ•Ÿ()

    • FlashTuning Support


      Are you sure you are including the as3 swf? (If you are trying to include the as2 swf into an as3 project you will get all kinds of weird errors)

      Also, please try to use English when contacting us – otherwise it will be hard for us to understand each other.

      Best regards,

      • Jose Luis Bellón

        Thanks for the prompt reply!
        I could fix it by adding:
        addChild (loader);

        The problem I have now is that the carousel only shows the image associated with each only when the mouse is above it, otherwise shows a gray box …?

        • FlashTuning Support

          The gray box is there because of the over shadow property.
          Decrease the overshadow alpha and it should show the images.

          In case this doesn’t help, send me a link to support at flashtuning dot net and I’ll try to identify what is wrong.

          Best regards,
          FlashTuning Support

        • Jose Luis Bellón

          Thank you very much for the prompt reply!
          Was solved by placing:
          param=”overShadowAlpha” value=”1″
          param=”overShadowColor” value=”0xaaaaaa”

          But this indicates that it is working well overShadowAlpha

  19. Philippe CHANTELOU

    Can I display external swfs using the link item ? Do I change the media type=”swf”, “media” ?

    • FlashTuning Support

      You should be able to use animated swfs even with type=”image”.
      If you encounter any issues (like weird resizes, etc.) email us at support [-at-] flashtuning (dot) net.

      Best regards,
      FlashTuning Support

      • Philippe CHANTELOU

        I talked about link item and the its ability to display external swfs after clicking the menu’s thumbnails: ie, when we substitute link=”carousel-images/SWF.swf” to link=”http://www.flashtuning.net/” nothing happens.

        • FlashTuning Support

          The link attribute works like a normal anchor tag.

          If nothing happens check to see if there is any pop-up blocker active (you can also set target=”_self” to open the swf in the same window).

          In case it doesn’t really work you can also email me the link and I’ll have a look.

          Best regards,
          FlashTuning Support

    I am building a website with a WYSIWYG website builder. It has the option of importing SWF files into the design page..Not sure about the XML but it does allow HTML code. My question is can I use this wonderful product in my wysiwyg program or can someone help me with that? Thanks

    • FlashTuning Support


      Yes you should be able to import this component as any other swf file. You just have to make sure your xml files are in the same folder or in the place you’ve linked using flashvars.

      Before you make a purchase, you can download the free version from http://www.flashtuning.net/free-flash-files to make sure it has all the features you need.

      If you encounter any issues you can email us at support((at))flashtuning((dot))net.
