Hello , I am trying to create a simple flash banners that scroll or switch -3 total. I am new to Flash but is there anywhere I can go to get the scroll through action scripts?

I am looking to create something like the Flash used for www.darkhorse.com

You shouldn't need ActionScript to do this. Just use the time line, and change the opacity at key frames.

Have you had a look at the help that comes with Flash? There're some tutorials there that will show you how to do exactly this sort of thing.

Sorry no-one has replied to your post sooner. Smiling

Yes opacity will help with dissolves, but for linear animation I think you need to use tweening.

Here is an old banner I made just with tweening.

I don't do much flash work anymore, I find it more economical to subcontract it, but I still like the retro B&W space opera feel of this banner.

[note: client never responded after I created it - maybe he was trying to rip me off!]
