    Beginner asks: How did they do this? Is it a pop-up menu?

    I was wondering how did they do these menus. Any tutorials that might be helpful? Cheers!

    I tried something similar

    Hi Itachi,

    I tried inserting a movie on button's over state. It makes a similar visual effect, but didn't work for navigation.

    The problems were:

    1.the hit area is still only the first word, and as I try to move the mouse over the words that appear, they disappear. How to set up a changeable/multiple hit area?

    2. I can't get to have multiple buttons placed inside an animation/movie.

    3.I can't get the animation to play backwards once the mouse ain't over anymore.

    do you mean like this:
    http://www.rit.edu/~dxs5855/fc/website.html

    at the bottom of the clip.

    Basically place a button there, with no up or down images, make the hit size equal to the area on which you want the trigger to start the movie menu.

    Place an instance of the button on the movie and add this action script
    Code:
    on (rollOver) {
        tellTarget ("button_menu_movie") {
            gotoAndPlay (2);
        }
        tellTarget ("button_info_movie") {
            gotoAndStop (1);
        }
    }
    the target in this case will be your movie containing the buttons. Initially no buttons are seen, but then you tell the movie to play.
    Hope that helped.
