You can add a handful of these whimsical black bats to your scene and they will behave independently and randomly. As they hang, they will twitch, swing, and stretch their wings until they decide to fly off into the sky forever…probably to prey on human blood!
By simply changing a few numbers, their behavior can be modified to have more or less chance of doing any of the actions. The flight is ActionScripted (no Motion Guide). Use some scaling and tinting to make each one slightly different.
BONUS :: This file also includes a version of the preview above (without my logo branding or buttons) so you could quickly create a Halloween e-greeting, advertisement, site header, etc. You get the following vectors: full moon, spooky dead tree, two grave headstones, and some ground to use as a grave/hill.
May I also recommend you pick up my popular Auto Bird file and perch one of those on a tombstone?FEATURES ::
