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?
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.
