Chapter 9. Masking Effects > ActionScript and Masking

ActionScript and Masking

You can’t move a mask with ActionScript, but there is nothing to prevent you from controlling the movie clip the mask is in or, for that matter, controlling a movie clip that is being masked.

Take a look at draggable_final.swf in the Chapter_09/Assets folder. Try dragging the circle around the Stage. Not impressed? Position the circle over the fighter’s head and then drag the slider in the lower-right corner. That’s all done with masking and ActionScript.
