Flash animation of an existing external image: How to do that?

Hello,

I just came across an animation that made me curious:
In the header if the http://stroupelaw.com there are some images (name, phone number) that have a certain effect applied to them.
But still these images can be viewed and saved. So the Flash animation is not including the image, it is applied to the image without importing it.

How to do that?

The logo and the phone number is indeed flash text and not image.
The header swf contains Bart Stroupe  PLLC is as an animated static text and the phone number is dynamic text with selection option active.

I downloaded the page and saved both as gifs.
Ok The reason is,
Only their homepage has the header in animated flash.
in all inner pages, The Logo and phone numbers are static gif images and not flash.
What they have done is, there are two types of files.
1. gif file with exactly the same fonts & sizes to use in inner pages.
2. swf with exactly the same fonts & sizes for the homepage.

Many websites prefer to do animated headers in homepages and not in innerpages is because the constant animations can distract the visitor.

Hi Dreamjay,

I will close the question soon. This was not the right example for a Flash animation with an external image.
Do you know how to do external text?
