I have a question. I think the coding (if possible) would be
Here is what I would like to do.
I would like to have a mask shape that I could drag over an
image. The shape will be a circle, sorta like a magnifing glass -
transparent (alpha = 0, or alpha < 100).
I would like to be able to drag this shape over the image
(this is fairly easy, as I have some code I copied from a kind
actionscript programmer, for drag and pan, etc).
Once I stop the drag, I would like to be able to zoom in or
out over the area that the "magnifing glass" covers, keeping the
base image outside the mask shape visible, and without zooming it.
I am trying to get my company to buy Zoomify - which would
probably do something close enough to what i want to do. The
company is slow to respond. hence my desire to see if I could
create the zoom effect in actionscript, etc.
