here's what I want to be able to do so I'll try to be as discriptive as possible. I'm building a movie for a clothing co. no when the mouse goes over a title lets say men..I want a picture of a male model to appear an so on, also  I'd like word in another roll over format at the bottom of the screen eg when the mouse goes over the words below
polo jeans
bugle boy
I want the to become i.e to be tweened to a bold text format
and I have alot of these formats to do any short cuts would also help


RE: rollover text

Your text must be a button, obviously, in order to get the RollOver action.

Now right-click on the button and select edit in Place.

The background looks lighter and the button looks normal.

Now go to the second frame, OVER. Insert KEYFRAME.

You can now edit the button and add your images the way you want them to appear when the user rolls over the button. i.e. You have a text that says men. Edit it, go to the OVER frame and insert the image of a man above the button. You can also go to the Down AND the HIT frames. DOWN happens when the user presses the button (without releasing) and HIT is invisible but defines the sensitive zone of the button. You can create a solid rectangle the same size as the button. Now go back to the scene and press CONTROL/ ENABLE BUTTONS. Go over the button and you should see the man or whatever you created in the OVER frame. Do the same for all your frames.

I hope that helped.

This image ONLY appears when you roll over the button.
