Most often, preloader are made by graphic designer on 100 frames without using any code.
Developpers integrate them, and use gotoAndStop on an enterFrame to display the loading progression.

This is my circle preloader.
To make this, I used 2 masks moving like the circle. Of course it could be done with code, but it would be a headlock with cosinus and sinus !
