    color overlay?

    jwh4545

      I'm wondering if anyone has had any experience dynamically placing a color overlay on top of a movie clip.

       

      Essentially I want my non-selected movie clips to have an 80% opacity black on top of them.

       

      ColorMatrix doesn't seem to do this (not the same effect, although it can darken images), and masking is not an option.

       

      Is there a filter which just dynamically overlays a color on a movieclip?

          no.

           

          if sizing and overlaying another movieclip with alpha<100% works for you, that would be the easiest way to proceed.  otherwise, you can use the colortransform class and for more complex manipulation, the bitmapdata class.
