Flash 8 Pro comes with some great Filters. These can be applied to text, images or other graphics. You can do this either whilst you are editing the Flash Movie or on the fly with ActionScript. Here is what Flash 8 help says:

Graphics Effects Filters: You can apply graphics Filters to objects on the Stage. These are called Filters because they pass the image data of the object through an algorithm that filters the data in a specific way. With these filters, you can make objects glow, add drop shadows, and apply many other effects and combinations of effects.



In this tutorial you will learn how to create graphics and text with Filters like this:
