May 20, 2008 Flash Tutorial: Applying Flash 8 Filters with Action Script

by @ 6:04 pm. Filed under Flash Industry News has produced a short and sweet Flash 8 tutorial for applying filters with the use of Action Script.

The tutorial is self rated as “intermediate” level. You should have some knowledge of the “arrays class” in AS so you can play around with the filters. Of course, basic knowledge of Action Script coding and its integration with Flash output is required as well.

The step-by-step tutorial walks you through the creation process, complete with screen captures of toolbar images and menu navigation.

The tutorial finishes with a bit of code, required to make your filter effects work:

var myBlur = new flash.filters.BlurFilter();
var myTempFilters:Array = circle_mc.filters;
circle_mc.filters = myTempFilters;

If you can understand the basic principles behind this sequence, you should have no problem with Oman3d’s tutorial – see this link:
