    Beginner - How to animate color fill of object or text?

    PerksFlash Level 1

      I am struggling to find a way to animate a fill of text in Flash CS4.  The concept I am looking for is that over a time period have the color rise from the bottom to the top.  My initial attempt was to have 2 objects, one filled with the color and the other filled with white.  I was hoping to just adjust the borders of the object or text to have it disappear, but that just reshapes the object, not cropping it.  If you know how to crop into objects and reveal the object beneath, let me know.

       

      I am very new to Flash so hopefully it is a simple answer, but I am not seeing it yet.  Thanks for any advice.
