3. Fade-in the beaming object above the sparkling

Now it's time to place the real object. If your object is a graphic object or movie clip in the library you can just place the same that you did use for the mask. Hint: Just copy the object from the mask layer into the clipboard, then add a new layer and paste it "in-place", using Ctrl-Alt-V. So you can be sure that the real object is in the same position as the mask object.

Now add another key frame to your "real object layer" and do the fading with motion tween.

If you try the movie now, you should see the object beaming-in or beaming-out.

Create a motion tween for the sparkling from alpha 0% to 100%
Picture 5: Create a motion tween for the sparkling from alpha 0% to 100%

The last thing you should do to your sparkling: After the person has beamed-down, the sparkling should fade out and vanish. You can do this, if you just fade out the sparkling movie clip from alpha 100% to 0%.

» 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.
