I was given an answer to a previous question here: http://www.experts-exchange.com/Software/Photos_Graphics/Web_Graphics/Macromedia_Flash/ActionScript/Q_24340770.html

i thought i could get it to work but for some reason i cant...

the caurina file is in the right place and my dynamic text is named but nothing is working - not even the alpha.

please see my example here: http://www.kiraaskaroff.com/fade_text_test/

im basically trying to fade out one piece of text and then fade in another using as3

please help - im really stuck!

thank you

import caurina.transitions.*
text1.alpha = 0;
text2.alpha = 0;
Tweener.addTween(text1, {alpha:1, time:1});
Tweener.addTween(text1, {alpha:0, time:1, delay:10});
Tweener.addTween(text2, {alpha:1, time:1, delay:12}); ...
