Laser Source and Laser Contact

Right click the "ball" symbol in your library, change it's property to MOVIE CLIP

Double click the "ball" symbol, which is now a movie clip, and in the time line insert a keyframe into frame 2
Now change the size of the graphic in this second frame to about 80 %
(-this gives the laser a pulsating effect both where contact is made and in the source layer which follows-)

Insert a Frame into frame 34 of the LASER SOURCE layer

Drag a copy of the "ball" symbol into the first frame of the LASER SOURCE layer and change it's size to 250 %
Centre it on the X axis and leave it about half way up the stage from the line

Lock all layers execpt LASER LINE 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.
