The Movie

Basicly we will need to create three layers: 1. ACTIONS 2. Eyes 3. Face (background)
Note that the file "Looking.fla" already has these layers and images set up.
Firstly select the left eye and give it an instance name of “eye”, then select the right eye and call it “eye2”. We are about to create a script that will tell the eyes to rotate to look at the mouse. Obviously this script needs to be recalculated all the time to catch every mouse movement so the eye is always looking in the correct direction. For this reason, in the second frame of the actions layer, create a keyframe and insert this action:
gotoAndPlay (1);
This will cause the movie to play over and over again, causing the actions in frame one to be executed over and over again. Now on to the tricky stuff...

» 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.
