- [Instructor] Before we go about programming…the functionality into our carousel,…we should go ahead and examine our JSON data file…and associated image assets.…So here's our project folder.…You can see that we have our carousel.fla,…but we also have a data folder which contains our JSON.…As you saw before, the JSON defines five different objects,…each with a title and image property.…The title will show up inside of our title overlay,…and the image is going to show up within the different…image container elements.…
We also have an images folder,…and we can see here the different images.…So here's image one, image two, so on and so forth.…Each one is represented within our JSON file.…We'll be dynamically pulling this data file into Animate,…parsing it, and then forming a set of controls…and behaviors around this in order to also…bring in the images dynamically and display those…to the user.…
Alright, let's move ahead with the programming portion…of this project.…
