Alpha/Opacity and Fading in Flash

Hello. In this tutorial you will be learning about Alpha (aka "Opacity") and fading objects in Flash. Alpha can be described as the "see-throughness" or "transparency" of an object in Flash. You can control the "Alpha" of a SYMBOL (button, movie clip or graphic) in 2 ways. Using Actionsript, or using the properties panel. In different situations, one or the other is suitable, and sometimes both. For instance, if you wanted to dim the "Submit" button of a form until all the forms are filled, you would most likely control the opacity of that button using actionscript. So, we’ll start with the actionscript way on the next page.

» 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.
