When the navigation first loads and only the top buttons are visible, there is a mask covering the buttons that you can not see. All of the buttons are contained in one movieClip and that movieClip is scaled to a point where it hides the button buttons. When you click the first button it calls a function to scale the clip down and load the subMenu (probably a frame label inside of the subMenu movieClip which is inside of the allMenuButton movieClip which is on the stage "_root"). The entire allMenuButton movieClip is then scaled down to a size where it is fully visible beyond the mask.

The animation on the buttons is simply a tween that plays when your mouse is over the button.
