I have a question about layer effects and filters -
firstly are there any way to do layer effects in flash (like in photoshop "stroke" "outter glow" etc...)
also is there any sort of plug ins to do special effects - perhaps with particles, or with pretty effects that I can buy
Thanks very much!
(as you might have guessed I am very new at this and appreciate all the advice I can get!)
You won't find anything exactly like the filters in Photoshop to use in Flash. There are Filters in Flash. They are available at the bottom of the Properties window for any MovieClip or Button object on the stage. Alternately, you can apply and animate a filter in Actionscript. There is one good third party developer, http://www.greensock.com, where you can find some very useful effects tools. Most are free.
Thanks EXACTLY what I was looking for
Thanks so much Rob,
