Subject: FLASH: EMERGENCY transparency!


I want to create a ad banner... it will be a white banner on a white
background... instead of having the text scroll in from the side and you can
tell that it came in from a blocky border, I want to create a white to
transparency fade on either side so it looks like the text FADES in... if
you
have no idea what I'm talking about, please look at:

sega.com

and on their site you'll see the same thing happening instead in black.. the
text looks like it FADES into the flash header at the top.

does anyone know how to use a gradient that goes from white to transparent
in
flash layers???

PLEASE help... need to be done in an hour.

Thanks
