I have been working on a sroller that uses the blur effect so
the faster you scroll it the more it blurs. It works fine until the
contents of the scroller movieclip exceed about 4000 pixels. Is
this because flash has a size limit of an object that it can apply
the blur effect to? If so can you overide it or is there a way
That is strange that you get to 4000. There is a known limit
of 2880 for most things related to the bitmapdata class –
filter effects being one of those things.
I'm guessing your scroller is a collection of smaller clips?
And that since it is a scroller you are only showing some part of
them either in a smaller viewarea or just across a less than 1000
or so area? (more or less)
In that case instead of just scrolling the whole thing and
keeping them in a giant line. You could perhaps "park" them once
they go out of the main viewing area or possibly just turn off
their _visible property. Either one would probably help.
The next problem you are likely to run into is that if the
length gets around 8000 and you move it too far one way or the
other you may "lose" clips. So I would recommend looking into the
