The Other Way of Controlling AlphaNow lets look at the other (just as common) way of controlling the alpha value of a symbol. Make a new Flash document. Create a new symbol with a good-sized shape. Place it on the stage and select it. If you dont already have it open, open the properties panel (CTRL + F3/Apple + F3 on a Mac). See where it says Color and drop-down box? Click the drop-down box, and select Alpha. Then, set the alpha to what ever you want. The advantage to controlling Alpha with actionscript is that its completely dynamic, although its sometimes just easier to use the second way. On the next page, well learn how to fade a symbol in Flash.
