More Fun With Buttons

You know those neat animated buttons that are sometimes used to get around cool web sites like love+rage (http://loveandrage.net)? I know, I know—it’s shameless to plug my own site like that, but do you want to know how to make animated buttons anyway? Here’s one to get you started. Beyond this, your imagination is the only limiting factor.

We’ll build an animated button by creating an animation sequence within a movie clip and then adding the movie clip to a button’s timeline:

  1. Open animated_buttons.fla, located in the 08 folder. I’ve started this file for you, so we can skip some of the setup. On the Stage, there is one line of text, on a layer named text, which is locked (indicated by the padlock icon next to the layer name).
