    How did they do this effect on GOTHIKA

    If you go to the MEDIA section, and to the TRAILERS/CLIPS section,

    there are three thumbnails, two with halle berry. When you roll over them, the image brightens a bit and the highlights flare out. It's a nice effect and I've been trying to recreate it, but I can't. How did they do this?

    I dissected the flash file and noticed that they only used the one image. In other words, they didn't have an image of halle berry, and then another one of her brighter.

    The other thing is that, if you try to 'brighten' the symbol in flash, it just makes the whole thing whiter, which isn't the desired effect. How can I recreate this effect from the gothika site?

    What is the secret?

    I am not sure what you mean by "dissected the flash file" but I would guess it's something that you shouldn't be discussing on these boards. Mods don't appreciate the talk about warez in Flashkit.

    Now, back to your problem. Lots of ways to do this. Here are two:

    1) Create a white box (same size as image), put it on a layer over the image. Alpha tween it over the image (fade in fade out type) and set it to happen on mouse over.
    2) Go into p-shop. Brighten the image. Bring it into flash. Set the alpha value at (lets say) 80. On mouseover, fade it up to 100, then back down to 80.

    I would say number 2 would get you the best effect emulating what you want.
