Multiplying the Movie Clip

Go back to scene1. Now it's time to cover the stage with the 'magic'. In sparkmc Layer copy sparkmc movie clip to tile over all stage area. Using grid will help you arrange this job neatly. This 'magic' effect works in all movie (keyframe 1-56). Don't forget to lock this sparkmc layer.

In flowermc Layer, copy flowermc movie clip place it zigzagly on the stage. It is available at keyframe 47-56. Lock this layer. At the last keyframe, put action :

The zigzag flowermc arrangement combined with the sparkmc makes the magic wand show double effect i.e. falling flower and sparkling at the one shoot.

For more entertaining effect, add textanim Layer and create some text animation by transforming the text and set its alpha.

That's all. Your scene1 timeline and stage should look like this:

» 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.
