    you're welcome
    i think everyone's seen that one

    you'll probably just have to practice with the stars, these people have been doing animation a long time. and all there secrets are indeed secrets.

    i like the flying boxes myself

    that actually looks like 3D

    I bet they did an exploding box or somesuch in 3DSMAX and then changed the animation to vectors using swift3D or vecta3D and then brought that into flash.

    The stars were probably done the same way, as it would be too much to do all of those by hand, and the actionscript needed to drive all those little bits would bring the player to its knees...

    So...unless you've got a 3D proggie and swift3D, I would say go with a less complex effect..

    anyone else with some ideas? Am I full of hot air?

    kraken, i think your answer was probably the best.

    i wish i could afford a good 3d program, i hear maya is coming out with an export to swf format
