    Text Action Help

    Ninjamonkeee
      I am teaching myself Flash and made my first text animation for my Boy Scout Troop. I can get the letters to roll, but I can not get the letters to remain after they roll. They reappear after the rolling sequence is complete. You can see it here:
      www.wp230.com/ninja/flash/troop.swf
      If anyone can help me figure out how to keep the letters in place and not go blank after they roll, I would REALLY appreciate it.
      Thanks in advance,
      -Bryce

          If this is timeline animation, then I'm going to assume it's on multiple layers.
          In such case, make sure that once the animation is finished, there are still frames
          on the layers through out the entire animation length. If there are no more frames,
          you can't see the animation - no frames or blank frames discontinues layer content.
          To help you visualize what I mean, here is a screen shot:
          http://www.flashfugitive.com/stuff/screen.gif

          To add frames, click on last frame on which the animation ends and hit F5. Hold it down
          till you add enough frame to rich the last frame of last animated layer.

          Don't forget to add stop(); action on last frame, unless you want it to be a continues loop
          of course, then you won't need it.

          If you use action script, then you will need to paste it for us to check. Will be hard
          to guess just by looking at your sample file.
