I'm using actionscript 2 to create a full screen gradient
across the screen as a background. (see code below).
It looks ok, but if I look closer the quality is not that
great. It doesn't seem to have enough colors to create a smooth
transitions from color A to B... Is there a way to improve the
quality? I'd like to avoid having to import a huge jpg or gif as a
background... there's enough to load already.
Likely it's a combination of the colors you've chosen for the
the area you are filling. There's only so many colors that
can fit in the
given space. For example, an area the full screen width might
still only be
1280 pixels wide - so the max colors you can put in there is
1280... If you
fill with light blue to dark blue, it might look spot on. But
if you go from
light blue to deep red, it won't be as smooth. It can't be.
