This option is very similar to the first one with one exception, instead of playing as soon as the text effect is loaded, the movie pauses for the amount of time indicated, then fades in the text effect. How your effect will fade out will depend on what option to select from below the black line. But at this point take no notice of the option selected below the black line.

The Actionscript command to load the effect was a follows (this is very similar to the first option). The Load Movie action was placed on the first frame of the main timeline and the Set Property Actions was placed on the next frame to position the text effect.

For more advanced control you can use the Set Property Action to modify the size, rotation and visibility of the text effect during play back.

Load Movie ("option1.swf", 1)


Set Property ("_level1", X Position) = 100
Set Property ("_level1", Y Position) = 18

Once the movie has loaded it will begin playing.

» Description: Hmm... what to say about this one? It's reminiscent of the closing notes of the opening music from the Three Stooges done in a church organ style with a closing cymbal crash. I'll give this one away gratis, but feel free to check out my free loops and potential upcoming license-mandated ones over in the respective part of Flashkit.
