    Is there a way to animate a blurred mask?


      I am trying to saturate a flash animation from left to right with a blurred wipe. I am attempting to do this by creating duplicate movie clips, with one of the movie clips having a filter to completely desaturate the color. I am hiding the saturated movie clip with a mask (basic rectangle) that I am animating to move out of the way revealing the "color". I would like my desired effect to "fade" in by adding a horizontal "x" blur to the mask. I have been successful at wiping in the saturation, but Flash seems to be ignoring the blur on the mask I have created.


      Is this possible? Is there a better way to do this? Thanks for the insight!


      I'm using Flash Pro CS5, and I'm a complete beginner with ActionScript.
