I'm working on a page that needs dynamic jpg loading. My
problem is that all the pictures loaded from a folder (that is on
server) look a litle desaturated or colourless. Black looks like
gray and red is nod as red as it's in original picture. I can't
figure out the reason. Is flash lowering the quality of dynamically
Im using forceSmoothing = true on MovieClip that loads images
and loading is done by using instance of MovieClipLoader class. I
have set JPEG quality to 100% in publish settings, didn't help.
This problem is really driving me crazy. If you have some solution
or idea why this desaturation is happening, please let me
I'm not sure why the desaturating is happening. I'd check to
see if its local. (ie- try your .swf on other monitors/computers).
A fix (of sorts) would be to use the colorMatrix class. I
believe Kirupa.com has a good tutorial on how it all works. Sadly,
I don't have the time to run and link it right now, but the
colorMatrix (it might actually be called a variant of that) class
takes a bitmap, and messes with it pixel by pixel. --IE you can up
contrast, saturation, filter colors, etc.
Really, that is a "solution", but colorMatrix is also taxing
on flashplayer, so if you try to animate an image running that
filter, its gonna bog you down (unless its small)
