  1. The transparency (as well as any other cool new technology) doesn't work in Netscape at all. Use Internet Explorer to be able to view transparent Flash Content.
  2. For the transparency effect to work as desired, don't add a filler background element to your movies. Many developers add a large, white rectangular box, etc. to simulate white color. Make sure the drawing area behind the main movie is clear of any unwanted colors, etc. (it will show up in the final animation.)

I hope the above information helped. If you have any questions or comments regarding this information or anything Flash related, please don't hesitate to contact me. I try to have all email inquiries replied to within 4-12 hours.

» 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.
