Create Multiple Filters with ActionScript


Free Flash Tutorial

Step 1    <<   Previous      Intro   1   2   3   4   5   6   7   8   9   10   11     Next   >>      


Step One: Setting up the Document

  1. Open a New Flash Document: File > New (Ctrl N)
  2. Important Note: You will not see the Filters unless your Movie is set to be published in the Flash 8 Player. It also needs to be set to ActionScript 2 otherwise you will get error messages. It is best to set these options right from the start.

  3. Go to: File > Publish Settings
  4. If the Flash Tab is not selected, select it:
  5. Note: This Tab will not be visible unless the Flash box (under the Formats Tab) is selected: .

  6. For Version select: Flash Player 8
  7. For ActionScript version select: ActionScript 2
  8. Click: OK
  9. Note: For the next section you will need to have a Photo saved to a location that you can find. If you want use my Jpeg photo. Right click (Mac: Ctrl + click) on the photo and select: Save Picture As...

    Right click on the photo and save the picture.

  10. Import a Photo: File > Import > Import to Stage (Ctrl R)
  11. Convert photo to a Movie Clip: Modify > Convert to Symbol (F8)
  12. Give the Movie Clip an appropriate name: myMovieClip
  13. For type select: Movie Clip
  14. This is my Movie Clip:

    My Movie Clip before the filters have been applied.

    Note: It is possible to apply many Filters directly to a photo using Linkage from the Library. In this tutorial I am not using the Linkage system but placing the Jpeg into a Movie Clip.

  15. If the Property Inspector is closed, open it: Window > Properties > Properties (Ctrl F3)
  16. With the Movie Clip still selected type an Instance Name: myObject

  17. My Movie Clip with an instance name: myObject
