So my title kinda says it all but I have a movieclip and I want to apply a blur effect to it but the add filter button is grayed out for some reason. Does anybody know why that would be? I'm not using any actionscript or anything, it's an animation project but I needed a blurry image in the background and I figured using the movieclip filters would be the easiest way to do it and it turns out no...
you're creating an html5 document?
your movieclip is tlimeline tweened?
I was going to answer on those lines too, but I tested it. Blur seems to be available in both cases, and whether there is a tween or not. I couldn't find a case where the filters menu is grayed out.
some filters are unavailable for html5 (i think) and fp version may be a factor for as3 timeline tweens.
i guess we'll get more info if the op responds.
