Working with filters using ActionScript

The flash.filters package contains classes for the bitmap filter effects that are new in Flash Player 8. Filters let you use ActionScript to apply rich visual effects, such as blur, bevel, glow, and drop shadow, to text, movie clip, and button instances. You can also use the Flash authoring tool to apply filter effects to objects such as text, images, and video. Flash has nine filter effects, although only seven are accessible by using the user interface in Flash Professional 8. The ConvolutionFilter and DisplacementMapFilter filters are only available by using ActionScript code.

Note

All filters are availabe by using ActionScript in both Flash Basic 8 and Flash Professional 8.
