Im not exactly sure what i have been doing wrong, but all i am wanting is to have a text that fades in within 120 frames, it starts to fade in at about 45 frames. The unfortunate problem is that nothing is working for me.. here are my steps!!

Create text -- $740,000

convert text to symbol -- graphic

named graphic -- price

inserted key frame on frame 120

inserted keyframe on frame 45

on frame 45 set transperancy to 0%

on frame 120 set transperancy to 100%

then highlighted all frames and selected create motion tween.

then for some reason it wont work, what am i doing wrong?

thanks for any help or suggestions guys!!

Well I'm not sure exactly, but if a motion tween exists on a layer, only ONE object can be on that layer. So you cannot make a tween of all layers with all objects, they need to be done one by one on separate layers. I also would say try to change your graphic to a movieclip.

ok, it is on one layer though, i must have worded it wrong, i have tried also changing it to a movie clip, but i will try again!!
