    How Can I Clean up Imported Bitmap Images

    Comp. 792 Community Member

      Hi, I am using Flash 5. I have imported a sequence of .png images and they are looking pretty rough and bitmapped so I wanted to clean them up.

       

       

      1. Do I have to select each frame after import and adjust the bitmap settings for each image or can I doo this somewhere so it affects al images?

       

      2. I can’t find the settings for cleaning up the bitmap images. I thought they would be in the “Properties” panel?

       

      3. Is there a way to fix the rasterization or clean up an imported .swf or is it better to clean up the sequence before saving as an .swf?

          Ideally you should have images cleaned up/ properly sized / optimized before you import them into Flash.  Once they are in Flash, one thing you can do that can help how the image displays, especially if you manipulate its size while in Flash, is to set the image to allow smoothing.  This can be set using code or can be manually applied to the image in the library by right clicking it, selecting Properties, and checking the option to Allow Smoothing.

            Thanks Ned,

             

            Wow, exactly what I was looking for. Thanks. A huge improvement in the look of the gradients.
