The input fields are loaded into an array. Each item in the array is broken-up into subStrings (I used charAt in the movie to get the appropriate letter). Each letter is then loaded into an MC that animates it. Since the clips are attach one after the other frame by frame, they seem to stream across the screen. The animating in the MC reinforce this illusion. The scripts in the controller MC determine the number of MCs that are attached, the time they are attached and removed, as well as the position at which they are attached. Most of the work is done on the enterFrame clipEvent. As you will soon discover, it is amazing how far a little scripting will take you.

» 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.
