Masking and the End

The next two functions also come very handy when we create slideshows or similar type movies. In the first function a mask will be created. Now you understand why we need a mask ready in the library of the fla. The rest of the script is just creating and positioning a movieclip, to which we can attach the mask. Then we create the mask over our movieclip m_movie using the setMask method.

The last function gives us the opportunity to delete everything we have created and that is all. Now it is up to you to implement these functions into your movie and you are never going to ask a question in the Flashkit forum how to fadein or out a picture??? Well, may be. If you are not too tired, visit my web site at for more tutorials.

    public static function maskMC(nu_x:Number,nu_y:Number,nu_w:Number,nu_h:Number) {
        _root.createEmptyMovieClip("m_maskmc",1112);
        _root.m_maskmc.attachMovie("mask","mask",1113);
        _root.m_maskmc._x = nu_x;
        _root.m_maskmc._y = nu_y;
        _root.m_maskmc._width = nu_w;
        _root.m_maskmc._height = nu_h;
        _root.m_movie.setMask(_root.m_maskmc);
    }
	
    public static function deleteMC():Void {
        removeMovieClip(_root.m_movie);
        removeMovieClip(_root.m_maskmc);
    }
