So i'm trying to make a simple horizontal navigation bar with text words i created (e.g. home...about...etc) I convert them to buttons, then double click on it to edit, add the key frame to the "over" state, then make sure that instance of the button in the over state is a movie clip, then double click to add my simple tween. then when i test, it works, HOWEVER, only when i roll over the actual TEXT will it react. as in if i moved my mouse in the middle of the 'o' in "about", there would be no "over" effect. What am i doing wrong?
Thank you in advance!
2nd part(for extra credit..haha): i'm trying to make it so when i roll over it, a "glint effect" will happen. I know how to do it separately, but how do i incorporate in a navigation menu. Would i just add the animation for the glint in the "movie clip" aspect of the button's "OVER" state?
Any help is MUCH appreciated! Thanks!
Anybody? I'm sure it's a quick fix for the first part. As for the second part, i know it can be done...i know how to make the glint effect with the masking on it's own, but where would i place that effect in respect to the button on the navigation? Thanks!
the 'hit' area defines the 'rollover' area for a button - since you only had text in there, you must be exactly on a pixel in the text for the button to work
PART 2, yes, make the effect in your over state...btw, thats just 1 of 1 million ways to do it....you could make seperate movies clips and trigger the in the on (rollOver) action for the parent button.
