  The Page Turn Effect in Flash MX

I've been working extensively with this sample, recreating it and customizing it to my needs.


Unfortunately, I've noticed a problem during testing. Open Page2 and cover it with text. When you run the animation, turning page1 over reveals the text prematurely.


Specifically, it appears that horizontally the text is masked correctly. But if you imagine several verticle lines covering the text, whenever a point on one of those lines is exposed, Flash incorrectly exposes the whole rest of the line. I know that sounds complicated; but if you throw some text on Page2 and play, you'll know exactly what I mean.


It looks like Flash treats the entire text chunk as one "object". I've managed to work around this by breaking the text apart several times until it is a graphic, but then it is no longer editable. As well, this precludes importing run-time content.


Any help is greatly appreciated!
