I am having an issue with using a motion under a gradient mask and was hoping someone might have a solution. I have a transparent png bubble in movie clips that are being randomly sized and animation started using code. The design has a reflection and I am using a gradient mask for the effect. The issue is when the bubbles animate they are causing drawing artifacts. Please see the attached screen shot or you can see the swf here - http://archetypeworks.com/test/tm/. Below is the code I am using to set the mask. Any help or suggestions are appreciated.
bottomMask.cacheAsBitmap = true;
beaker_bottom.cacheAsBitmap = true;
beaker_bottom.mask = bottomMask;
Could be many things.
1.Try to vectorize your png bubble (Modify->Bitmap->redraw) and look if that solves the problem.
Thank you for the suggestion, but that did not work. I also tried breaking apart the png, using the magic wand to select and delete the transparent areas. Still getting the same issue.
