I'm working on a tie dye t-shirt designed project.
Essentially, a user will be presented with a picture of a tie dye
t-shirt, and a palette of available dye colors. The user will then
drag and drop colors onto the t-shirt to customize the design.
In VB (which i am more familiar with, thought far from expert
in), I would acomplish this by pre-processing the t-shirt image so
that it would be an 8 bit indexed bitmap, with each shirt color
region representing one palette entry. When a new color is dropped
on the shirt image, I would then simply change the palette index to
the new color. When the user was finished, the palette would
reflect the users desired design.
I am unsure if this approach will work in Director. Is it
possible to manipulate palettes on the fly? Or am I going to have
to take some more indirect approach?
Thanks for any and all suggestions.
