Double-click on the created MovieClip. Double-click on the border to select it. Press the 'Delete' key to delete the border.
You may keep the border if you want to but that will slow down the trailing effect.
Create the animation
- Inside the trail MovieClip, select the first keyframe in the Timeline.
- From the Menubar, select Insert>Create Motion Tween.
- Left-click on the 20th Keyframe and select Insert>Keyframe.
- Left-click on the 60th Keyframe and select Insert>Keyframe.
- Left-click on the 60th Keyframe and open up the Actions Pane. Write down the following code:
- To give the cursor a trailing effect, we will need to make copies of the trail MovieClip by using the ActionScript function duplicateMovieClip().
- We will also be requiring to delete the copies when the trail effect finishes. After writing the above code, all copies of the trail MovieClip will be automatically deleted as soon as they reach the 60th frame of their animation.
- This code will have no effect on the original MovieClip from which the duplicates will be created. So, the original MovieClip will not be removed.
