Hi Richard and all,

The following are instructions for fading a Symbol to white over 10

1.Create a new layer
2.Drag your Symbol from the Library into the layer
3.Insert Frame at frame 10 of the layer
4.Make frame 10 a Key Frame
5.Make frame 10 the Current Frame (indicated with the current frame
marker in the time line)
6.Select Modify > Element, or double click the Symbol. A Link
Properties: Symbol dialog box
will appear
7.In the Color Effect field, choose Brightness
8.Move the slider all the way to the right, or enter 100 in the %
9.Click OK
10.With the Frame Pop up Menu in frame 1, choose Tweening...
11.In the Tweening field, select Motion
12.Uncheck Tween scaling, Tween rotation, and Orient to path direction
unless you are using
these features
13.Click OK

If you want to fade to a specific color such as yellow, select Special
or Tint instead of Brightness in step 7. Then specify the RGB values of
the color to which you want your Symbol to fade.

Note: Color effects can only be done on Symbols from the Library. Look
at the word in brackets [ ] just above the preview window of the movie
Library to verify that the Library element you are using is a Symbol.


The above is MM Tech Note 12686 by Erica Norton (This is not indexed at
