I am i newbie on this... i did the lessons that arein flash 5 and was wondering how do i make animated flash buttons that are something like a circle and the outline moves outward going down alpha 0%
get what i mean?
What you need to do is put a movie clip (MC) inside each frame of the button. Since the different button phases are only one frame each, a symbol won't play long enough, but a movie clip will play and loop as long as the button stays on that frame.
Just put your animation (The circle tweening) inside the MC, inside the button on whichever frame(s) you want.
