Frontpage Feature - Thanks Newgrounds, you're the best! :D

Hey! This is a 35-section tutorial for you all, in which I have started on the basics and moved later into more complicated stuff. I hope that both people starting out in Flash and even slightly more advanced author will be able to learn something from it! You can of course feel free to e-mail us if you don't understand something, or join our forum, where I can post replies to you :)

That was the best tutorial I have seen on NG... I just want to make one suggestion.... could you add how you fade text?

Smoking-Chimney responds:

Firstly: thanks for the review. Secondly: Basically the object you want to fade make into symbols (a graphic or movie clip). Make it's on a layer of it's own, and right click on the keyframe it's in and 'Create Motion Tween'. Then insert a keyframe later on in that layer ( e.g. at frame 50). The frames between 1 (where you started in a keyframe) and 50 (where you added the other keyframe) should be blue with an arrow between them. On the second keyframe (at Frame 50 or wherever), click on the symbol (graphic or movie clip) you have made, and as you highlight in, on the Properties Tab (Ctrl+F3), a little drop-down box will appear next to 'Color:'. From it, select alpha and change the value (100% is opaque, 0% is transparent). The first keyframe should fade out to the last one.
Hope this helps!
