    Creating an effect using a mask

    zishaha

      Hi everybody.
      I'm new in this and im trying to create a flash effect using a mask layer.
      i want to have a text box which is invisible, and throu the timeline small peices of a mask layer will move over the text box, revealing the text. My problem is this, if i create a mask layer with more than 1 object, when i try to move the objects (for example in different directions so the text will reveal from both sides) then i get a weird movement from the objects (like the sum of both movements i wanted) so i was think maybe a layer can contain only one moving object.
      So i just cant figure how can i get the effect i want. would be happy to get an advice, Thank you in advance.
      (im using flash cs3)
