Step One: Creating the Text

Firstly, you create the text that you are going to place the effect on:

This is an example of the text that I used in my Example *.SWF

Simply click the text tool, click somewhere on the stage, and type whatever. Notice that I used a "thick" font, which will allow more of the effect to be seen. But it is not necessary that you use a font like that, the effect will still look good on any text. Don't spend time trying to perfect the color of your text, as it will be used as a mask later, and you won't be able to see the color of the text anyway.

» 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.
