Step 3: Setting up the animated menu items

  1. Add a new Keyframe for each of the 3 submenu item layers at Frame 14: About, Products, and Contact.
  2. Select all 3 Keyframes at Frame 10 for the About, Products, and Contact Layers by clicking first on the About Keyframe and dragging down to the Contact Keyframe. By clicking and dragging down you can select multiple layers at once. This will help you evenly create the starting point for each of the layers.
  3. With all 3 Keyframes selected, use your left arrow key and move the menu items to the left approximately 20 times.
  4. With the Keyframes still selected, change the Alpha to 0% by going to the Effects Panel and selecting the Alpha option from the drop down menu and then entering 0 in the field. Click Return/Enter to make the changes.
  5. With the Keyframes still selected, add the Motion Tweening to them by going to the Frames Panel and selecting Motion for the Tweening option.
