Well, this one is a bit odd.
I have managed to get the text in place. I converted it to a graphic symbol, inserted it at one key frame with alpha at 100%, several frames later in the same layer I inserted a new key frame, changing alpha to 0%, then created a motion tween between the two. When I move the frame indicator back and forth within the Flash MX editor I see the text fade out like it is supposed to, but when I export the movie to .swf format and play it in Flash player 6 there is NO fading. The text appears when it is supposed to, but never fades out.
I first thought there was a problem with my flash player, but I’ve viewed the .swf file on other computers and have the same problem.
Anyone have any ideas?
