    Need help with simple(?) animation

    Applied CD Level 1
      I need to animate a saw blade cutting letters out of a background bit map (the cuts are all straight lines). Coming from the Director world I would probably layer 2 copies of the background, the top one with the letters cut, the bottom one whole. I would then mask the top layer with an alpha channel and animate the alpha channel to gradually reveal the cut. Is there a better way to do this in Flash? Anyone have an open source example? I’ve got the letters as curves in Illustrator if that helps. Thanks, Sorry about such a broad newbie question.
