could you tell me how to create a ray of light effect without using a lot of actionscripting?

You can build it by using a lot of masks

or easy by using actionscript:

Lets say you have a moving MC with instance name xxx

for (i=0;i<30;i++)
zzz = ('xxx' add i);
duplicateMovieClip ( 'xxx', zzz, i );
setProperty ( zzz, _alpha, 15-i/2 );
setProperty ( zzz, _xscale, 100+i*4 );
setProperty ( zzz, _yscale, 100+i*10 );

just put this script on the same timeline with a MC (xxx)

thanks very much for the solution. but i want the text to be stationary and only the light should move.
