wow... itz my 3rd question of the day... once again, i have a simple question that is too challenging for me. how do apply an rollover effect on a button such that when a user places his or her cursor on top of the button, the button gets bigger and blurry (in a loop-ing manner). am i supposed to do something with four states of the button (up,over, down and hit)? or is related to actionscripting? or both? thank you very much for stopping by. peace
There r two ways of doing this.
U can put a movieclip with the animation u want in the over state only.
U can place an empty in the first frame and a stopped mc over the button. Then with actionscript assigned in the button, tell the mc to go and play frame 2. Like:
When u put a movieclip in the stage u put an instance of it and not the real thing. So u must name this instance in order to control it. U name it by using the instance panel.
_root represents the main timeline.
_root.theclip means there is an instance called theclip inside the main timeline.
