This is a simple effect to animate any of your word. You can use it as an introduction to your movie by just adding a “Skip Intro” button if you want.
There are attributes you can control from the xml file. If you don’t put them via xml then the defaults given in the action script are used. You can also apply these attributes to a particular word to make it appear differently.
a. textcolor – default color of the text
b. size – default size of the text used on the characters
c. inrotationspeed – inner rotation speed for the characters – greater the speed, slower the animation
d. outrotationspeed – outer rotation speed for the characters – greater the speed, slower the animations
e. appearscalespeed – scaling speed of the characters on a word – greater the speed, slower the animation
f. showdelay – the delay to perform before showing each word
g. staycount – no. of frames for which each word should stay on the stage
h. gap – default gap between each character
i. link –url to open when a word is clicked
j. target – name of the target frame or window in which the link should open
As soon as you change any of the above attributes, the animation gets adjusted. So, you can make many kinds of cool affects with this file.
There are two kinds of things.
1. You can animate a number of words together to make it appear like an introduction to your movie. For this, the words are loaded from an external xml file and the symbol name is “words”.
2. You can make any of your word appear with this effect by using the symbol “word” and giving it a word you want… wordmoviename.word = “FLASHDEN”; and also applying the settings too.
If you use the “words” symbol then the space for showing the words gets resized automatically as soon as you resize the Stage of the flash movie.
You can also try changing the font style in the “char” symbol.
