    Scrolling Text - Ticker Effect?

    Primal Atom Level 1

      Does anyone have any suggestions for a hack to scroll text (ticker tape effect)?

       

      Even if it doesn't loop, seeing the effect just one time (for demonstration) would do the trick. (FC doesn't appear to have the ability to loop a transition?)

       

      I tried to fake it...

      Took a sample sentence of text > converted to "Custome Component" > moved off to side of canvas (state1) > moved to final place on canvas (state 2) > set state settings (speed of move, etc)...

       

      It looks good in "edit in place" mode, but I couldn't get the interaction to start "on load".

      (I seem to remeber that from Beta1, but can't find in Beta2.)

       

      Any other ideas?

       

      Thanks.
