Video: Creating a Floating Ad with Reminder from Template

You can create a Floating Ad with Reminder, when you want to create an ad using two Flash movies. The Floating Ad, called the intro, plays within a limited area in a transparent layer over a Web page. After the intro plays, the second Flash movie can play, called a reminder.

Reminder types are as follows:

Floating: The reminder appears for a specified number of seconds and then disappears. It can be positioned anywhere on the page.

Banner: A banner reminder appears within a banner space on the page and stays there until the page is closed. A banner position must be bought by the media agency for a banner reminder to be used.
