Step Two: Creating an Object

Most filters can be applied to Movie Clips, Buttons and Text. There are some advanced filters that can only be applied to Movie Clips. In this tutorial I am going to apply a glow filter to a rectangle which I am going to place inside a Movie Clip:

  1. Select the Rectangle Tool: (R)
  2. Drag out a: Rectangle

  3. My rectangle.

  4. If the Property Inspector is closed, open it: Window > Properties > Properties (Ctrl F3)

  5. Double click in the centre of the rectangle to: Select the Rectangle

  6. Selected rectangle.

  7. Change any of the rectangles properties as appropriate: Change Properties

  8. My rectangle's properties.

  9. With the rectangle still selected go to: Modify > Convert to Symbol (F8)
  10. For Name type: myMovieClip
  11. For Type select: Movie Clip
  12. Click: OK

  13. If the Property Inspector is closed, open it: Window > Properties > Properties (Ctrl F3)
  14. With the rectangle still selected type an Instance Name: myMovieClip
  15. Note: The Movie Clip needs an Instance name so that the ActionScript can find the object to apply the filter to:


    The new Instance Name.
