  1. Select Frame 12. With the Use Center Point option checked, Position the symbol at X:0, Y-62.5
  2. Select Frame 21. Open the Instance Properties dialog box, click on the "Color Effect" tab, choose the "Alpha" Color effect and give it a value of 0. Close the Instance Properties dialog box by pressing "OK".
  3. Tween frames 3 - 15 and Frames 18 - 21. The result for Frames 3 - 15 should be the symbol moving in a clockwise diamond shaped fashion returning to it's point of origin and it should fade up as it travels between the first two Keyframes. For Frames 18 - 21 the symbol should just fade out. This looks good but let's give it a little more polished look by adding a motion guide.
  4. Select the layer and add a motion guide by going to the "Insert" menu (Ctrl+click on Mac and PC).
  5. On the new layer insert a Blank Keyframe (F7) at Frames 3 and 16.
  6. Select Frame 3 and create a circular path. (You can do this by creating a circle and deleting it's fill.)
  7. With the Use Center Point option checked, center the path and give it a dimension of 125 x 125.

» 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.
