Hello everyone,
my first thread here...


I'm wondering for a few days now how you can animate each letter apart in a text field using Action Script. I know you can do it by hand too, but that takes soooooooo much time :)


Please help me :(

Also checkout http://www.wildform.com for SWfX which is a great cheap app which makes such effects and Flashkit.com has a FlashTyper section which does the same thing, for free.

OK now, it worked fine with one effect. But if I wanted to do the same to another text (in the same movie), with all new variables, he just deletes the first text (well, the number of letters he needs for the second text).
Anyone knows how that comes???

Gonna check out both URL's too, but would like to do it all by myself, so I can build up onto that to make my movies more FLASH...



Laterz.... & thx
