Blurred Edge Mask Effect
on Nov 29, 2005 at 9:50:52 pm

Does anyone know how to blur an edge of a mask??? I tried blurring the movie clip but it did not show up in the mask. Any help with this would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks
Ian

Depends on what version you're using as to how easy it is! In Flash 8 it's as simple as converting two objects to movie symbols, naming the instances, then using a script like this;

maskedInstanceName.setMask(maskInstanceName);

pretty simple!
check out

http://www.macromedia.com/support/documentation/en/flash/fl8/samples.html

under Alpha Masking it has a simple zip.

IF USING ANOTHER VERSION OF FLASH-
couple ways to fake it

Hope that helps

One thing that Macromedia neglected to mention is that both MovieClips need to have "runtime bitmap caching" enabled in order for it to work.
