Yesterday I was searching through gamespot when I saw their home-page embbeded flash that shows the latest news and stuff, I wonder how they manage to do that transition effect (just wait some secons for it to go the the next "screen") ... I guess its a kind of mask effect but could not imagine how to do it in flash?

www.gamespot.com is the url, this news flash "applet" is right in the home-page.

Thanks,

Marcelo.

That one is pretty simple. Just make an MC that's black on one side, white on the other, and there is a blur where the colors meet. Then, make it move from left to right so that the clip goes from one color to the next. Then, just put it on a layer on top of the MC you want to "wipe" and play it.

Thanks a lot Paerez, I will try that. Though, it would be perfect if you could post a little example, its kinda hard to follow just your written instructions.
