How to fade alpha in across text

Recommended Posts

I'm trying to create a line of text that slowly fades into view from left to right (or top to bottom, whatever).  I see the very simple process of fading the entire text field in or out, but is there a way to fade vertically or horizontally?

Not exactly sure what you are trying to do, but for the horizontal fade you might try fading in each character in sequence. 

This would be fairly straight-forward with our SplitTextField tool: http://greensock.com/splittextfield


For a vertical fade, you could fade it in line by line, again SplitTextField would work great for that.


Or maybe you just need a mask-reveal effect. Here's a great tutorial on creating feathered masks: http://www.snorkl.tv/2010/10/feathered-soft-edge-variable-transparency-mask-with-flash-a-masking-double-whammy/

SplitTextField looks like it will do exactly what I need - thank you!




Doh, members only :(
