    Dissapearing swirl effect

    Can anyone help me with an effect I'm trying to make?

    I'd like to make an image look like it's disappearing by someone is drinking it down with a straw. The best way to describe this would be if you were looking at a the inside of coffee mug from the top down, and the contents would ripple, and disappear in a swirl effect. I don't want to show the straw, just the effect the liquid would have if someone was drinking out of one. I don't have an example anywhere, but I hope you may get what I mean.

    I sort of have the ripple effect done using an oval shape tween mask, but would welcome any better (more realistic) suggestions.

    I should mention that I do not know actionscript at all, so if that's the solution please lay it out like you were teaching a 5th grader. Thank you in advance.

    The below effect is similar to what I'm looking for. Instead of transitioning into another object, my object would simply alpha fade to 0%. I'd like the swirl to continue to go in one direction rather than stopping and "unswirling" back.

    Anyone have any ideas?
