I have successfully using the following to do the smoothing
of external jpg image. e.g. (from 700x525 to 350x262)
1) Load image into a movie clip
2) create a BitmapData object the size of the image in the
3) use the BitmapData.draw() method to "draw" the image bits
from the movie clip into the BitmapData object.
4) Use MovieClip.attachBitmap() to attach the bitmap to a the
movieclip that you will be using for your display.
BUT, if I try to scale down a jpg image from 700X525 to even
smaller 160x120.....distortion appear again...
Is that we cannot make a perfect and smooth thumbnail from
Really hope that any expert could help thius. thanks
