    The best would be with actionscript, but you can also do it with symbols and motion tweens. You just have to be carefull you don't put too many characters on the screen at one time or your file size will explode .


    1) Make a long verticle symbol that is just a buch of random letters.

    2) Dupe the symbol on a few layers

    3) Make a mask layer (that masks all of the letter layers)

    4) Motion tween the letter symbols down through the mask

    5) If you want different brightnesses you can just add a layer on top, and add a square that is filled with a gradient. Make the gradient dark with a very low, fluctuated alpha value.

    That would be the simplest (and jikiest) way

    P.S. - Dig the random quote generator on my footer. Still working out the kinks tho...

    Here's a link to an open-source movie with this effect from the Flashkit movies section.

    Hope this helps,
