Creating the Individual Elements.

1. The Text

First off, you need to create the text you want to create. The best way to do this is in another vecor art application such as Adobe Illustrator that has more transformation and perspective options. Then copy and paste it over to keep the file size low.

IMPORTANT! make sure you place it EXACTLY where you want it for the entire movie. Once you begin some of the later steps, it is impossible to move it.

2. The Pen

Get an image of a pen somewhere...draw it, import it, whatever. Make it a movie clip. Mine is an actual pen that i used the trace bitmap command for.

» 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.
