Progress bar of movie

Is it possible to show how far through a movie someone is.  I have a series of frames they need to work through and wanted to show them graphiclly how far they are with the task

Many thanks for any help on this one

RE: Progress bar of movie

_movie.frame will tell you the current frame number, you can work out the percentage of the progress.

A very simple graphical solution is to have your bar start Full and then Empty as they progress. Just make your bar and have the sprite run the entire length of your timeline. Add a Key frame at the end. Then click on the keyframe in the last frame and set the width (or height depending on your preference) to 0 and align it to the left (or bottom) end of your original.
