    Lol I don't really know what to call this effect. It's like where a line goes along outlining a picture, then it flashed and the picture appears. I recently found it on:

    www.maoles.com

    When viewing the 'Hows my site' forum. So does anybody know how to create it or have any links to tutorials on it or anything?

    I think the site is pretty nice. It's clean, simple and effective. Although I don't understand the language it's in, I like the layout. Can you send me it plz? willnarburgh@msn.com.

    That's what I want.

    Thanks, I'm getting it now. Do you have any written tutorials on it?

    I guess I could write one. Looking through the .fla you should be able to see how its made. Basically, you import your picture into flash. Typically then what I do is create a movie clip and put the pic in it and "Trace Bitmap." Then I get rid of the background or whatever. Then I make another movie clip called Solid where I just fill in the outline of the picture. Then again yet another one called Outline where I use the Ink Dropper on the outline. If it is a pic that has sharp lines inside of it, I will put it in another layer on top of it, then lock it with a low alpha so I can just trace the lines I need to. The last symbol I need is for the mask. I just make a rectangle with a white gradient 0%>100%>0% alpha.

    Next is just creating the masks. You will need 4 layers. Bottoms layer will have your outline symbol on it. Next layer up will be your mask, with the solid symbol on the next layer. The top layer will have your actual picture on it. (One hopefully obvious thing to note is to make sure that all of your picutures are lined up...unless your going for a different look). Then, just move the mask over and flash on and off the solid layer and lastly display the pic...nothing to complex.
