Hi, I am trying to create a very simple 'fruit/slot machine' effect using moving numbers, and a mask.
I want the numbers to start at 0,000, spinning through to 1,700. The '1' and '7' work fine, but the two '00' disappear during the tween, then reappear at the end (I have a 'stop' in place)
I have the spinning numbers as a 'movie clip', and I have tried uisng 4 different number clips (at the moment 1 clip is duplicated). Seems really bizarre, HELP!!!
The only reason I can think of for a text character to not appear under a mask is if the textfield is a dynamic textfield and the font is not embedded. So I'd check to make sure that's not the case, and if it was I'd just break down the text into graphics to make sure it never has a chance to happen again.
Beyond that, my next guess would be that the movieclips end up not being where you expect them to be and their y position has them above or below the mask and out of sight.
Thanks Ned, I shall give that a try!
