**Animating the Tag**

Close off Raster 4 and open Raster 5, Copy Merge back in AS paste after current Frame.
Close off Raster 5 and Open Raster 6, Copy Merge, back in AS paste after current Frame.
Now Open your name and Copy and paste as a new animation over in AS (if you dont it will be too big for the tag). Copy one more time
Back on the tag select all frames, propagate paste your name into the selected frames.
Check the animation to make sure it is working properly. If you want you can slow down the snow. I slowed mine down to 45.
