The project that I am currently working on requires me to
apply filters and use alpha masking on images from an external
domain. When I test these files locally in Flash they work, but
they will not work in a web browser when hosted on a server even
with System.security.allowDomain() in the SWF and a crossdomain.xml
file on the hosting server.
Is it impossible to apply cacheAsBitmap() effects to images
from external servers, or am I just doing something wrong?
