i tried posting this question on flashkit but no replies there so maybe you guys might know since i go the tut here!! =)
i had followed this preloader transition tutorial ( http://www.kirupa.com/developer/mx/…_transition.htm ) and everything works fine, so no preloader problems!!!
i would like to get the same effect as the transition done in http://www.fontsforflash.com. i had asked the designer of that site if i could go about doing the same effect by following the tutorial above but no luck.
i tried changing the mask to zero alpha, etc but the external swf’s just appear, the mask does not work.
i tried doing another effect by using a different preloader and setting a mask underneath it, i followed this post: http://www.kirupaforum.com/forums/showthread.php?t=65217&highlight=transition
i somewhat understand this but i want to mask an external swf not jsut an image…
does anyone know of a simpilier way or am i just doing this wrong?? i am new to this scripting/masking thing so please please bare with me
