Step 1: Create new movie and call it cross.  When you make the crosshair movie, first add another layer and call it actions ( we will get to those in step 3), call the bottom layer crosshair, then insert keyframes in frame 2 on each layer.

Step 2:Then, on the crosshair layer, draw a short line right across the center of the stage (use the cross hair already there as a guide).  Copy it, past it, then use "modify", "transform", "rotate 90 CW".  After that, use the cross hair already there to align the second line to the first.

Step 3:After the crosshair has been made, the actions must be added.  Double click in the first frame of the actions layer, then place a stop action.  Once that is done, copy that frame over into frame two of the same layer.

» 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.
