I'm Fading Fast





With the introduction of behaviors in Flash MX 2004, a simple fade is an easy thing to create. Okay, that's great, but these behaviors aren't going to work in every situation. What if you wanted a shape to morph into another while it fades out? Not going to happen with a behavior.

The great thing is that even without behaviors, fading effects aren't difficult to create. Create a simple Motion Tween (must be tweening a symbol). On the last keyframe, go to the Property inspector, click the Effects button, and set the Alpha to 0. That's all there is to it. Now you have a basic fade-out effect.

The same thing applies for a Shape Tween. You can use the tip about See Through Shapes to set the right Alpha for a shape. Use behaviors when you can, but keep this one under your hat for those customized situations.
