How To: Create a typewriter effect using Flash CS4

Create a typewriter effect using Flash CS4

The typewriter effect is a popular text effect for games and movies that makes text appear letter-by-letter on the screen as if it is being typed as your watch. It's cumbersome for actual reading, but looks cool and old-school. This video will teach you how to create this effect using Actionscript 3 and Flash CS4. Bring the 20th century into the 21st!

Thank a lot for your tutorial, but what if I want to add a "skip" feature? that is, when the text start to be typed in, I click on the screen and the full text will appear, skipping the type writer effect.
