I'm trying to do a sweep reveal of one image that is made up
of 72 individual squares. It's a diagonal sweep of that entire set
of squares simultaneously going from left top to right bottom to
reveal an image. So each of 72 squares is doing the same reveal of
one large image at the same time.
I've managed to do variations of this idea using shape tweens
and creating movie clips and duplicating them. But if I need to
change the timing it's more difficult if they are all individual
frames. Flash seems to get cranky when I try to mask a symbol and
then multiply it and use it as a mask for another image.
Seems like such a simple thing, maybe I'm missing the
obvious. I'm somewhat new to flash and not much of a
ok note sure if i got what your saying but il give it a try.
you have a background image and a mask made up of 72 squares
(1 symbol, 72 instance of that 1)
if thats right. i just tried it also all i is 1 box working.
mainly cause there symbols. so how do you do 72 easy make it 1
symbol but not the easy way your ganna have to make it the long way
ill try to help...
go from the stage into the mask symbol so you can see the
background image. now instead of having 72 instances just copy
frames and make 72 layers then move them to fill screen. making
your checked desolve look possible.
if thats not what your looking for please put more info so
someone else or i can help thanks..
