Text intro tutorial

Thanks for th great tutorial…

I have two questions after completing the “text introduction sequence”

  1. How do I keep it from looping?
  2. How can I keep the letters on the screen after they have faded/ cascaded in…? How can I keep them from disapearing after teh last key frame?

Thanks for everything!

I’m glad you liked the tutorial. To keep the animation from looping, simply right click on the last frame and choose Actions. Add a Stop action. To keep the movie from fading, click on each individual letter. Then choose Modify > Instance. Move the alpha slider back so the letter fades back into view.

I hope that helps. If you have any questions or comments, please don’t hesitate to reply back.

Thanks for the prompt help!
The looping has stopped, but I cannot get the letters to stay. I checked over teh tutorial again and your made the suggested changes…
For each letter, at their last keyframe, the alpha is set to 100%. Ther are several frames after the last key frames with dashes in them…why are those their.
The movie plays, teh leters fade and tumble into place and then they disapear…not fade out again. Thanks for you help…I am very grateful.
