Chapter 3. Modifying Simple Graphics > Creating New Gradients

Creating New Gradients

In addition to solid colors, Flash works with gradients—bands of color that blend into each other. Gradients can be linear (parallel bars of color) or radial (concentric rings of color). Gradients can create interesting visual effects and are useful for adding shading—to make a circle look like a sphere, for example.

Flash defines each gradient with a set of markers, called gradient pointers, that indicate which color goes where in the lineup of color bands. You define the color for each pointer. By positioning the pointers on the gradient-definition bar, you control how wide each band of color is. Each gradient can contain as many as eight colors.
