The animation effects
that we are going to discuss about are similar to the
cursor effects being Flash
Menu. Those effects are base on the same "particle
system" with different parameters. Below are 2

Create a new movie clip called "ball_clip".
On the clip, draw a circle, fill it with radial gradient
fill style. (use whatever color you like). It should
look like something below:
Now you need to create another movie clip
called "moving_ball_clip". The animation this
clip has to achieve is to move the ball from bottom
to the top according to a guideline.
First create a key fame on the 1st frame,
place the ball_clip on it. Then create a about 8 other
frames following the first frame. Convert the last 2
frames into key frames. On the last frame, type the
On the second last frame, move the ball_clip
a bit up and scale it down to very very small size.
Apply motion tween (with scaling on) from the first
frame to the seconde last frame.
Now, you need to insert a new layer to
the time line for the motion guideline. Just draw a
line as follow:
Make sure that the guideline connect the ball in the
first frame and the one at the second last frame. Then
convert this layer into a guideline layer. The timeline
of this "moving_ball_clip" should look like:
