Download the sample files here, then follow these steps to create this great effect…

1. Create any text of your choice, and convert the text to a movie clip.

2. Right click the movie clip, and insert these actions:

onClipEvent (load) 
{
this._alpha = 20;
}
onClipEvent (enterFrame)
{
ax = Math.abs(this._x-_root._xmouse);
ay = Math.abs(this._y-_root._ymouse);
incr = Math.max(ax, ay);
if (incr<=80)
{
this._alpha = 100-incr;
} else {
this._alpha = 20;
}
}

3. Copy this movie clip.

That’s all you need to do! Play the movie, and move the mouse over the text to see the effect at work.
