Step 4: Moving the Effect

Now to make the effect move with a simple motion tween applied to the rectangle. Unlock both layers so that you can see the rectangle again. Now right-click on Frame 1 of the rectangle layer and click on Create motion tween. Now, depending on how fast you want the effect to be, create a keyframe later in the timeline. If you put a keyframe at 15, you'll have a fast effect, if you put it at 300, you'll have a slow effect. Experiment and learn. When you have the keyframe on the effect layer, right-click on the frame directly above the effect's second keyframe and select insert frame. This will make sure that the text stays on the stage while the effect rolls along.

Your timeline should look something like this:

» 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.
