The Color Matrix Filter lets you add color filters to Movie Clips, Buttons, Text and Bitmap Images. A Color Matrix Filter shifts the color in a particular direction. It allows changes to the images color tint, saturation, hue, luminance brightness and other color effects.

The red & blue colors have been increased.

 

In this tutorial you will learn the ActionScript needed to apply the Color Matrix Filter to a Movie Clips with a Jpeg image placed inside the Movie Clip.

 

In this tutorials you will create the following Color Matrix Effect:

Example: Download the Flash file Draw 218a

 


Flash Movie created with a Color Matrix Filter.

Note: A filter is not applied if the resulting image exceeds 2880 pixels in width or height. For example, if you zoom in on a large movie clip with a filter applied, the filter is turned off if the resulting image exceeds the limit of 2880 pixels.

Important Cross Ref: This tutorial shows you all the ActionScript including all the options available through the parameters. But it only briefly describes how to apply this to an object within Flash or how to edit the parameter settings. If you are not familiar with this I suggest that you return here after first reading the tutorial: Creating Filters with ActionScript
