Filters

Basics

Filters let you apply interesting visual effects to graphic elements. They can be animated in motion tween for performing dynamic effects on animated objects. You can experiment with applying as many effects you want for achieving combined effect. Filters can be applied to text, buttons, and movie clips.

Applying filters

To apply a filter you need to open the filters window (see beside), select applicable object and then, by clicking on add filter icon, select the appropriate filter. You can customize each filter effect by changing specific options for each.

Blur

This filter is used to reduce image noise and reduce detail levels. The Blur filter softens the edges and details of objects. Applying a blur to an object can make it appear as if it is behind other objects, or make an object appear to be in motion.
