View Full Version : Scrolling Text
02-14-2001, 04:17 AM
I've tried a number of tutorials on this site and others trying to learn how to scroll a text block. And yet I've had no luck. My suspicion is that some of the action scripting in Flash 5 is different than it was in the Flash 4 tutorials and that's why my efforts have been miserable failures. Can anyone point me to a Flash 5 scrolling tutorial, or in an act of incredible benevolence, assist me with some guidance.

My tutorial (as with all my tutorials) is made for Flash 5 and works fine with Flash 5:

call the bottom one "text" call the top one "mask"
on frame one bring your text just below the mask so it is not visible. go to frame thirty and bring it just above the mask so it is not visible.
motion tween the sucka and put a stop action on the 1st and 3oth frame.
