When i try and mask a new line, as shown in the flash video
bellow, the previous masking layer will over mask the new line. How
can i stop this from happening and is their an easier way to do
this. I have never used flash before so open for any suggestions.
(The flash animation purpose is to scribble out the bar code) Also
just pay attention to the 3 lines being drawn in the first part of
the video nothing else, i just didnt clean the swf up before i
For the amount of masking you appear to be doing, there may
be an easier way, without them. It still involves frame to frame
animation. What I have done in the past for "handwriting" effects
is to take the finished thing and copy it to the next frame and
remove a small piece, then copy that to the next frame and remove a
piece from it....and so on, until you remove the last bit of it.
Then all you need to do is reverse the frames and it will appear as
though it is being drawn/written.
