Adding Layers and Keyframes

First add another layer to your scene, making a total of two.
Name the second layer buttons and the first layer movie.
Create a simple button on the second layer, but don't add actions to this button just yet.
Then create some simple text in the movie layer.
Make that text in layer one into a movie and name it over.
Then right click on the movie and click on edit. You will see your text in the middle of the screen.
Click and drag the first keyframe to the second frame, leaving the first frame empty.
Right click on the third frame and click on add keyframe.

Your movie should look like the something like the picture below.

» 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.
