I have a movie with dimensions w198.0 by h737.0 And what i
would like to do is insert a layer or clip in to a layer that has a
nice Aurora effect such as :
http://www.damnnationx.com/aurora.swf to the back ground of my main menu....
This file ya see there is realy nice looking but what id liek
to do is make it so it penatrates the edges of my 198 by 737 box by
say 10pixels so it effectivly gives the menu a nice multicolour
Any ideas on how to do this? tutorial perhaps?
simularily ive seen a few masking tutorials that give some
prety nice border effects Is there a way to create say a number of
shine areas on specific parts of my menu that loop in animation
continualy? ie i have a basic sqaure with only stroke on it id like
to make the stroke change texture or shine all around it over time
To me it looks like the Draw API was used. They are using
lines that extend out from a point and the color fills between the
lines. A loop and changes is in the Draw code creates the wave
lines. I would start looking into the Draw API. Flash also has some
sample Draw API you can look there too.
