    hi, i got the following info from a helpful tutorial. hope it helps you too!

    Transitions, like tempos, palettes, sounds, and behaviors, have a channel set aside for them in the Score.


    A transition always takes place between the end of the current frame and the beginning of the frame where the transition is set. If you want to create a dissolve between two scenes, set the transition in the first frame of the second scene, not in the last frame of the first scene.

    To add a transition:

    1
    In the transition channel, select the frame in which you want the transition to occur.

    2
    Choose Modify > Frame > Transition or double-click the frame in the transition channel.

    3
    In the Frame Properties Transition dialog box, choose a category if desired, then select the transition you want. You can quickly scroll through transitions by typing the first letter of the transition's name.

    Many transitions have default settings for Duration and Smoothness. You can adjust the sliders to change the settings.

    For many transitions, you can also select whether the transition affects the entire Stage or just the area that's changing.

    Xtra transitions may offer additional options provided by the developer. If the Options button is available when you choose an Xtra transition, click it to view and change the transition options.

    4
    Click OK.

    Director displays the cast member number that corresponds to the transition in the transition channel. The transition also appears in the cast.

    Well this isn`t exactly what i had in mind, cus you have to use multiple frames and id like to stay in one frame and let the Text fade in and out, by using some sort of blend script?

    Here's something that might help. I wrote it as a simple rollover. I have my
    text already set at 40% blend. When the mouse rolls over the text it blends
    up to 100%. You should be able to change it to do whatever you need.

    property speed

    property _startBlend



    on mouseEnter me


    _startBlend = sprite(me.spriteNum).blend

    repeat with i= _startBlend to 100

    delay speed

    sprite(5).blend = i

    updatestage

    end repeat


    end mouseEnter





    on mouseLeave me


    repeat with i= 100 down to _startBlend

    delay speed

    sprite(5).blend = i

    updatestage

    end repeat


    end mouseLeave

    on getPropertyDescriptionList me


    props=[]


    props[#speed] = [#comment "How fast", #format #integer, #default 4, #range
    [#min"1", #max"50"]]

    return props


    end getPropertyDescriptionList

    Ooops, I left a bug in there. Where it says sprite(5) it should read
    sprite(me.spriteNum)
    Sorry 'bout that.
