I am looking for a way to make a blur on a piece of film in flash, I can do it in after effects easily with an adjustment layer, is there any way in Flash that I can make an object that will blur everything under it?
The only other way that I can think to do it is to have the film imported twice (one normal and one blurred) and then mask the blur one over the unblurred version, but this seems like a silly way to have to do it.
Oh yeh the reason i am trying to do it in Flash (and not just use AE) is that I want it to interact in real time and not just be a rendered effect. I dont want to have the whole piece of film blurred but rather just want to square of film to be blurred
I believe the way you call silly is the way it needs to be done if you only want a segment of an object to appear blurred. blurs are applied to objects as a whole.
