    How to blur in Flash

    HDsuperglide Level 1

      Hi,

       

      I have text that I would like to come in to the stage from the side, but I would like it to be a horizontal blur like it is fast, then unblur to a sharp text. Is this something that I can do in all within Flash?

       

      Thank you,

          If you are publishing to Flash 8 or higher you can use the BlurFilter. In some of the earlier versions of Flash I think you would have to put the text into a movieclip and then you could apply the filter. In later versions (I can't remember when it came in) I think you can apply a filter directly to a text field.

           

          To apply a filter select the movie and then scroll the properties panel down to the bottom and you should see the filters.
