Hello,

    I actually purchased this effect from a flash site and would like to embed it into my flash file as an intro opening.  I know how to bring it into the library no problem.  Where my problem resides is getting it to work right in the timeline.  Can someone explain to me in lamens terms how to get this darn thing to work right so you can see the effect?  Thanks for your help.

The effect is the curtain opening.   I'd like it to fade into the curtain scene..pause a few a sec or two, then slowly open the curtain to introduce the main stage.  These two files are that i.e. curtain opening... the main .fla and then it's .swf file.

I've done absolutely nothing to the file.  I purchased the source code i.e. The .FLA and it's .SWF.  That's it.  All I'm wanting to know is how to import this .FLA file into my present .FLA file and get it to work.

1. fade into the curtain scene.
use a tween (whichever is your preferred package to fade in the movieclip)
2. if you edit the movieclip you'll see it has a bg movieclip (the blue thing) - must admit I don't think this file is setup that great, but you just need to place whatever needs to appear behind the curtain there, under the 2 curtain movieclips.
