Creating the Ripple Movie
The ripple movie consists of two layers,
- one called "Ripple Mask" and
- the other called "Main Picture".
On the layer called "Ripple Mask" create the layer into a mask (via properties).
And for the layer called "Main Picture" change it into Masked (also via properties).
Now on the layer called "Ripple Mask" you will need to create a small circle, with it filled of course.
If in doubt look at the fla in the download.
Then at frame 25 place a copy of the circle, and make it much larger.
Coming into this tutorial your should all ready know how to make Shape Tweens.
So create a shape tween and it should go from small to big.
Before we go on, I should add that you will need to make a instance (a Picture or Movie clip) of that picture you selected. Duplicate it for later purposes.
Now we need to put that picture on the first frame of the layer "Ripple Mask", and Alpha it down to 0% ,
6 frames further down, insert a keyframe, which should contain the pic alphaed at 0%. Now make this at 100% so its visable.
Make the frames inbetween them motion tweens, so it will alpha in.
Next we have to make the picture alpha out near the end, so basically do the opposite on the last 9 frames, so it disappears at the end.
The end frames should look like this...
