People seem to have trouble with the easter eggs, so I'm gonna give some directions (I thought they were all so obvious):

Firstly there's access to the sound test hidden on the main menu. It's a small hidden button that's attached to the top left video screen. Mouse around the swing-arm joint.

In the Masking section there's a button in the shape of a lady's panties in the right side of the screen about half way down. You can click it at any page, but if you have trouble, flip to the page with the actual female figure and point to her nether regions. This takes you to a night club scene with some info on the music used in the tutorial.

At the end of the credits sequence there's a rather large button in the shape of a bar wrapped around one of the lines of text that hangs on the screen as the music fades. This will take you to an object viewer. You'll have a spy glass to view descriptions of some of the various objects that were made for the tutorial. There are several pages.

Also, if you're paying attention, there's several places during the tutorial where there's a funny-looking black scribble down near something. That scribble is very small text that you can zoom in to actually read about where to find the Easter eggs.

A most excellent tutorial

This might possibly have been the best tutorial ever. Even though I somewhat lost you now and then ( I have just begun learning flash ) you still managed to teach me a whole bunch of new techniques. Especially the last one is amazing, yet so relatively easy to animate.

I'm hoping to see more flash tutorials coming from you! 10 out of 10 and a 5 out of 5!
