Using this tutorial, you will see how to create a text that is titration, using some special flash tips and tricks. You don't have to use action script code to create this tutorial. You will also learn how to convert any text into a symbol, how to enlarge it using the Free Transform Tool (Q), how to apply on it alpha effect and more.

Example:



Step 1

Open a new flash document. Press Ctrl+J key on the keyboard (Document Properties) and set the dimension at whatever you want. Set the background colour as whatever you like, I used picture as background for this example. Set your Flash movie's frame rate to 35 and click ok.





Step 2


Double click on layer 1 to rename its name in background. After that, create a new layer above the background layer and name it text.

Step 3

Select the text layer, take the Text Tool (A) and go to the Properties Panel (Ctrl+F3) below the stage. Then, choose the following options:

1. Select a Static Text field,
2. Select a Tahoma as font.
3. Choose 35 as font size,
4. Select black as color,
5. As the rendering option, select Use Anti-alias for readability.



Then, type on the stage "TITRATION". See the picture below.



While the text is still selected, go to the Align Panel (Ctrl+K) and do the following:

1. Make sure that the Align/Distribute to Stage button is turned on,
2. Click on the Align horizontal center button and
3. Click the Align vertical center button.



Now, you have aligned the text with the background.

Step 4

Press F6 key 55 times. See the picture below.



Then, click on every second frame and press delete key on the keyboard to delete it. See the picture below.



Step 5

Go back on the first frame of layer text and press Ctrl+C key (Copy), to copy this text.Then, create a new layer above the text layer and name it text 1.

Step 6

Click on frame 15 of layer text 1 and press F6 key. Then, press Ctrl+Shift+V key (Paste in Place).

Step 7

While the text that you just copied is still selected, press F8 key (Convert to Symbol), to convert this text into a Movie Clip Symbol.



Step 8

Click on frame 20 of layer text 1 and press F6 key. Then, take the Free Transform Tool (Q) and enlarge the text like it is shown on the picture below.



Step 9

After you have enlarged the text and while you're still on frame 20, take the Selection Tool (V) and click once on the text to select it. After that, go to the Properties Panel (Ctrl+F3) below the stage. On the right, you will see the Color menu. Select Alpha in it and put it down to 0%.



Step 10

Right-click anywhere on the gray area between the two keyframes on the timeline and choose Create Motion Tween from the menu that appears.



Step 11

Take the Selection Tool (V) and select the all frames from frame 20 to frame 55, choose right click and Remove Frames. See the picture below.



Step 12

Go back on frame 15 and press Ctrl+C key (Copy).

Step 13

After that, create a new layer above the layer text 1 and name it text 2.Then, click on frame 30 and press F6 key. After that, while you're still on frame 30, press Ctrl+Shift+V key (Paste in Place).

Step 14

Step 16

Right-click anywhere on the gray area between the frame 30 and frame 33 on the timeline and choose Create Motion Tween from the menu that appears.
