I am still learning things with flash/flex/flex builder so I am not sure if this is a flash question, flex, as3 or what. However, I wanted to make some type of object that I could use a Graphics object of to draw some svg. It seemed some people were suggesting a Sprite as a basic building block. But when I tried to use a spark move effect it complained it had no transformX property. So instead I used a SpriteVisualElement to do my drawing and the move effect could move it. But now I look into using a GlowFilter and it's putting glow over the whole stage. If I add the filter back to my original sprite code it works great and as expected making my svg glow. But now I am back to not being able to use spark move effects. Is there some other type of component I can use for my needs?
