Step 5:

Add a third layer to be used as a guide. On frame 1 draw a straight line along the bottom of your text and continue the line across the stage to the right. This will show you your text path. On frame 35 be sure to line up the text on this line without changing the x position of the text. Do the same for the other text instance.

Step 6:

On frame 1 of both text layers create a motion tween and give it an ease out of 100. You should now have criss crossing text. Now create a mask layer for each of the text layers. The top text layer should have a rectangle mask to the right side of the screen and the bottom text layer should have a rectangle mask to the left of the screen. Where the two rectangles meet is the corner. You may have to tweek the position of the two masks a bit to get the right effect but I think the result is pretty cool. You should also be able to change the text in the symbol (as long as it is about the same length)and the effect will work the same.

» 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.
