First off, there is no actionscripting involved. (yaaay!) Okay, so, first: open a new document. (duh) Choose what color you want the background to be. Then, Create your text (whatever color you want). Next, press Ctrl+F8 to insert a new grapic, named whatever you want. Make a rectangle that is the same height as your stage and twice the width. Make sure the border is either the color of your background or not there. The fill should be a linear gradient, with three sections. The left is (background color) with no transparency. The middle should be (background color) with full transparency (invisible), and the right should be the same as the left. Place the thing we just made in the stage and add a keyframe, oh i dunno... 20 frames later. Make sure on the first frame that the text is not visible because it is covered by one side of the grapic thing. On the twentieth frame move the graphic to the side so that the text will not be visible. Make a motion tween and you should be done. If you need help then look at the file attached. AS A LAST RESORT e-mail me. *Please note: the effect looks best with a black background.
