Fading Text Effect

In this tutorial I will show you how to create an easy scrolling text fading effect on any kind of backround like shown below.

Step 1:

Start with opening a new flash movie, save it as "textfade," or as you wish. Then import any image into your movie by going into "File" menu, and from there select "Import...", find your image and click "OK." Make sure your image is centered on your stage. If you want the image to cover the whole movie area, change movie settings to dimentions of your imported image by going into "Modify" menu, select Document and change width and height of your movie.

» 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.
