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%.

The flash's horizontal road drive was done in CS4 and was upgraded to CS6. The car responds to right/ left key and flash will auto-generate the movement of roads from left-right or right-left based on random number. Have fun driving in this virtual environment and avoid other cars... :) If you are creative, a road driving game can be created from it.
