Mask mclip to beget transition effect for picts/menu;

jan 8 2005

Largely employed , tweens with alpha for pictures/menus/etc transition , have become with
time overused and commonplace ;
I´ve tried unsuccesfully to create a movie clip to be used as a mask so that a different transition
and / or a fade out effect would be displayed ;
Formerly Fonts for Flash had a very nice effect on menus and buttons : they simple
came out of view by means a pulverize like effect ; this kind of effect would the ideal;
I am not quite sure whether you know what I talk about but never mind , I accept any suggestion ,
if you know some tutorial of an interesting effect that could replace tweens with alpha ;
