go to http://www.requiemforadream.com/

This is a movie promotion site, even though its made to look like a cheesy commercial site. btw, it's one messed up drug movie, anyways . . .

click on the fake banner
after page loads etc, click on the members link to the left
Text and music loads, then there's this collage effect that reveals itself as the user rolls the mouse over it.

How on earth is this done??

I check the cache and there's 2 swf files there. One is an audio file, and the other is the final collage. Huh??

Buttons which onMouseOver reveal the layer below... prolly using interactive masking...

Checkout the Mask Follow Mouse tutorial here ( http://www.actionscripts.org/tutorials/beginner/Mask_follows_mouse/index.shtml ), as it's almost the same sort of thing.

I have done something like this before.
Make a movieclip.On frame 1 put a stop action. On frame 1 layer to make a white square:::say 50x50 or whatever. Convert the square into a graphic symbol. Now add another layer and make another white square. This time make it 25x25.Convert it to a button. Add a bunch of frames to the 50x50 square layer. Insert a keyframe on the last frame and set the alpha of the 50x50 sq to 0%. Put another stop actoin here too. make sure to motion tween the frames.
Now on the 25x25 button put this code.

on (rollOver) {
tellTarget (this) { //note the target is an expression
play ();

Go to the main time line. On layer 1 put what you want to be revealed. On lyaer two drag a bunch on instances of the MC we jst created to cover up the "what you want to reveal stuff" And test your movie.

sorry for the scatterbrain tutorial. I don't have a lot of time. I have a fla. if you need it. Drop me a line at [email protected] if you need it.
