Chapter 15. Creating Graphics: Applying Gradients

Chapter 15. Creating Graphics: Applying Gradients

This tutorial guides you through the process of using the gradient tools in Macromedia Flash Basic 8 and Macromedia Flash Professional 8. With Flash, you can create simple color gradients and complex gradient effects. In this tutorial, you learn how to do some of both.

A gradient is an area of a graphic where one color changes into another color. Flash can create two main types of gradients: linear and radial. Linear gradients change color along a single axis, such as horizontal or vertical. A radial gradient changes color in an outward direction starting from a focal point. You can adjust the direction of the gradient, its colors, the location of the focal point, and many other properties of gradients.
