This option should be treated differently to the previous two. It involves a little more actionscripting to get it to work, however this option also delivers more control over how your text effect fades in. As I've mentioned before how your effect will fade out will depend on what option to select from below the black line. This will be explained later.
The Actionscript commands used to implement the effect are as follows. The Load Movie action was placed on the first frame of the main timeline. The Set Property Actions position the text effect and the Tell Target action was placed on the Play button.
Load Movie ("option3.swf", 1) ... Set Property ("_level1", X Position) = 100 Set Property ("_level1", Y Position) = 18 ... On (Release) Begin Tell Target ("_level1") Go to and Play ("start") End Tell Target End On
The tell target action does not necessarily have to be placed on a button, this has been done to highlight the fact that this option gives you total control over when your text effect plays. You can also replay you text effect when ever you want. Rather than using the Play action or frame numbers. Flashtyper has built-in labels that make it easy to code. You can use the label "start" to begin playing your text fx and the label "fadeout" to begin fading out your text fx.
