I am a newbie still with Swish but have some of the basic masking
principles down. I am trying to duplicate this effect i found online http://www.cum2themovies.com/images/image1.swf
it has a glass effect kinda like on the tv show CSI Miami
and try as I might I can't get it to work. I am able to get kinda like one motion but that's it..Any help would be cool
Those effects are created with flash --if you want to try to copy the effects you could make your rectangles and then go to the shape panel
and make your rectangles about 30 percent transparent. Then make your
motions using move effects.
Here's a good tutorial on move effects-------- http://www.omegagrafix.com/swintro.htm
The transitions between graphics are move effects also. You should probally start with a photo and play around with it untill you get the idea. http://www.easytemplates.com/
Look at the Beach template on this page and start trying to mimick it. Their are also some others you can mimick at swishsites.
