Could anyone tell me how you could achieve the “closing in” “closing out” transition effect seen in this website?
I mean when you go to the main page and click “Design” for example, the page sort of blacks out slowly, loads the page, then slowly it appears. It doesn’t seem as simple as just fading in and out, it seems to be similar to stage curtains opening and closing.
iswthunder – I don’t mean text tweening. I know how to do that. What I mean is, the page transitions. Just check out the website, you’ll know what I mean. When you click on a link, everything closes down to black from the outside, then the page loads, then everything slowly appears back from the inside.
Just check out the site and click on a link, you’ll know what I mean.

Create the words you want and make them a symbol
Then create the number of frames you want the effect to last and create a second keyframe.
Go back to the first frame, move the words to where you want them to start, and turn the alpha all the way up. The word should then disappear in that frame.
Right click the first keyframe and create a motion tween.
Hit enter and it should work
