Creating the Light

Now that we have the Middle Layer created Lock it and Unlock the Bottom Layer.

What we're goning to Create now is a Light Source.

First Make a Circle with a fill in color Yellow. You can make it as big as you want. but for now lets make it 140.5 by 140.5.
To get the Circle to that size. Select the Circle, Go To 'Window' then 'Inspectors' then 'Object' (or CRTL+ALT+I ).

Now we Need to change the Fill Color to a radial Yellow with an outside color of white with the Alpha set to 0%.

That gives the Circle the Flash Light style effect.

Now we need to set the Circle to a movie.  Select the Circle, then 'Insert' then 'Convert To Symbol' (or F8),
Set the Behaivor to 'Movie Clip'. Name the New Clip 'Light'.

Now Edit the Instance Properties.  Make the 'Instance Name' light.

Doing this will help us up for adding Action Script later.

» 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.
