- Create your text or whatever in Frame one, right click on frame 2 and hit “Insert Keyframe” Repeate this process up to …lets say… frame 10.
Now right click on frame 2 again and choose “Insert Blank Keyframe”, repeate this process on frames, 4, 6, and 8. So that every other frame will have a keyframe. Tah Dah, it blinks!
Yep, just a mask, thats all.
This bouncy box effect is become very popular and overused. But it is done with shape tweening.
To do this effect Draw you shape in Frame one, then on frame …lets say… 10 again right click and hit “Insert Keyframe”.
Make sure you didn’t make your shape a graphic, movieclip, or button, this is important.
After you do that, right click on the grey area between frames and choose “Insert Motion Tween”, now with a frame in the grey (now purplish) area selected, open up the properties window (CTRL+F3 I believe), and in the drop down menu that says “Motion”, choose “Shape” You will now have a green area instead of a purplish area that ends with an arrow pointing to your last keyframe (which is still grey). Now edit the shape in the last keyframe and you have your shape tween. Mess with this method until you get the effect you want.
