Step 6: Tint to background color

Select the layer with the imported .png file in it that is now a symbol. In the effects panel choose Tint and choose a color the same as the background color, whatever it may be.


The edges of the masked area blend pretty nicely. Changing to different colors is easy. You can just change the background color and change the Tint setting of the PNG layer to the new background color. You could work with more elaborate Photoshop masks or using a gaussian or other types of blurs instead of a gradient fills work as well. You could scroll horizontally or experiment with different effects in the Flash effects panel.

» 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.
