Does anyone know how to do the effect that is used in "The Thwomps 3" credits, where the words fade in and out as the go on and off the screen?

Thanks. Using Flash 8.

Well, you could try making a black square, converting it to an MC, and putting the filter 'Glow' on it. Then place it at the top and bottom of your stage and on a different layer tween the text...

I can't tell from the pic exactly what you want, so I'm not sure if that's the effect you're going for...

Umm... maybe this will clarify. See how as it comes in, the text gets lighter, and as it goes out, gets darker?

Make a gradient that is all black with 3 bars in it. Make the middle black one's alpha 0. Place over stage.

Tween credits normally.

You mean to fade in and out? That's really easy.
Make a new layer on top of everything you want to fade in/out.
Where you want it to begin fading, create
a box over the whole stage that is the color you want it to fade into.
(For example, black is the most common.)
Then set the opacity of that box to 1%. (In the fill color panel)

Then make a keyframe on that same layer about 20-30 frames away.
To the box that is on that keyframe, change the opacity to 100%.
Then right click in-between those two keyframes and select "Create Shape Tween".

There you have it, it fades in.
Use common sense to figure out how to fade it out.
