I'm trying to create an animation with Flash CS3, so that a text will slowly fade in into the scene (ie alpha 0 -100). When working in design mode it works fine but when I test the movie de text pops up at once. I converted the text first into a symbol (movieclip) and added a motion tween afterwards.
I've done this sort of thing before with MM Flash 2004 and that works fine. But when I try to add another one in that one, the same thing occurs.
It works fine if I use shapes but not with text, eventhough in converted it to a movie clip. It's possible that I've forgotten something significant, but I can't figure ou what, so any help will be very much appriciated.
It sounds like you are using a dynamic textfield. You need to embed the font in a dynamic textfield in order to animate it. If you do not need it to be dynamic text, then convert it to static text and you won't have to embed the font.
