Flash: Animated Masks

Source Files: Download
Level: Easy
Version: 4,5

Getting Started

  1. Create a new movie and place an image on Layer 1. This will be the background layer. Name that layer "Background".
  2. Create a New Layer above Layer 1
  3. Create a Mask on Layer 2 by Right clicking on the top layer and choose: Mask

This makes the top layer the mask layer and the bottom layer (Background) the masked layer. Flash locks both layers by default once the mask is created.

Unlock the Top Layer (Layer 2) and create a rectangle shape on that layer. (Any shape will do, of course, I'm just using this shape for this example.)

We've added 4 New Movies to our Flash 5 source files cd! These include detailed videos on:

1. Tell Target/With
2. Dynamic Text 1
3. Dynamic Text 2
4. Animated Fly Out menu Part 2

About the CDROM:
These movies are the SAME content found in our Flash 5 tutorials, but the quality is clearly better than the streaming, web-compressed format we have online with Frame Rates up to 20 TIMES FASTER and CD-ROM quality AUDIO!
