Conclusion and Note

Playing the movie at this point should work.

One last note. In its present state, i.e. using the main timeline of the movie, the movie will loop endlessly and it is of course the endless looping that changes the image through the text every two frames. There may be a time where you want to place this effect in a movie instance where, unless otherwise instructed, it will not repeat. In the “Writing Mask” layer, place a keyframe above the last used frame of the “Image” Layer. Click with the right mouse on that frame and choose “Actions.” From the list of Basic Actions choose “Go to” and change the information accordingly if you need to.

» 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.
