Actionscript :: MovieClip Replacement That Converts An Existing Imported MovieClip To A Sequence Of BitmapData
I've written a simple MovieClip replacement that converts an existing imported MovieClip to a sequence of BitmapData. This removes the requirement for Flash to render vector data in the MovieClip on each frame.

But BitmapData has a huge memory footprint. I've tried converting the BitmapData to a ByteArray and using the compress() method. This results in a significantly smaller memory footprint. But it has proven impractical. For each redraw, I tried uncompressing()'ing the ByteArray, then using SetPixels to blit the data to the screen, then re-compressing() the frame. This works but is terribly slow.

So I was wondering if anybody else has an approach I could try. In Flash, is it possible to compress bitmap data in memory and quickly blit it to the screen?

I wonder how native animated GIFs work in Flash. Does it uncompress them to BitmapData behind the scenes, or is frame decompression done on the fly?

AS3 :: Xml - Saving A Change To Attributes In A Pre-existing File?
So here's the situation: I have an XML file that is holding a short list of nodes, all of which have two attributes associated with name and a score. This file is already loaded into flash and creates a high-score table, of sorts. Now, what I want to do is to be able to grab data collected in the application, use that to change some attributes in the XML file and have it save that change. As it is I can change the attributes using:myXML.children()[t].@attr = attributeVariable;Which seems to work while the application is still in session, but does not actually save those changes to the file itself as I am hoping fo

ActionScript 3.0 :: GradientFill On Unregular Shapes
I've got sprite on the stage, let's say it is a graphics of a car. I would like to let the user fill the car with the colors he inserted to xml file.So, if I have square or rect, I do the thing this way:[code]So in the symbol class(Car) I added a public function, which I use for the instance of the Car in the MainTimeLine(as DocumentClass)car.setGradient(fillColor1,fillColor2,fillColor3)but gradient applies to the rect, created with drawRoundRectComplex, which then is added to the car instance. And I would like to fill with gradient the shape of the car.Is it possible [code] instantly took an idea that I could shift this function from Car's class body to the MainTimeline and pass the object to fill as a parameter. But how to incorporate this object between beginFill and endFill methods. The same way I tried to set THIS I mean actual instance to be filled but it doesnt work for me. Wrong code, or it is impossible...:/ but, is it possible to incorporate shapes created with authoring tool and then change its gradient via code?

ActionScript 3.0 :: MovieClip With Two Frames - TextField Not Existing
I have an issue where I have a movieclip with two frames, both of which have a textfield.
The problem is, when I call gotoAndStop(2) and try assign text to the textField in that second frame I get a null Pointer exception, as if the textfield doesnt exist anymore.
public function select(){
this.myLetter.text = "X"; //there is a textfield on frame two called myLetter
Its simple code but it doesn't seem to be working.

ActionScript 3.0 :: Loading Image In Existing MovieClip?
I have an existing MovieClip called mc1 on the Stage. That MovieClip has 2 keyframes, the first one has an image in it, and the second one is an empty keyframe.After compiling, I want to load an image (image1) from the library into the the firstkeyframe, and replace the existing image.

I know I need to right click on the image in the library, export it, give it a class name, and I need to assign an url to it which would be 'image1' in this case.I was thinking of this, but I cannot get the url right, and I dont know how to refer to the firstkeyframe after I've loaded it...

var Imagecontainer:Loader = new Loader();
var image:URLRequest = new URLRequest('image1');

ActionScript 3.0 :: AddChild In A Existing (non Programmed) Movieclip?
I have a dummy clip in my Flash application where I want to load the final content to.Now everything seemd to work. When I do a addChild() on the complete event, the addedToStage event is triggerd, I can do a gotoAndStop but it isn't visible. Just when I do a tage.addChild() or a root.addChild() I can see it. Even "root.myClip_mc.addChild()" doesn't work. The clip where I want to add it is at position 0,0.

Professional :: Apply An Existing Filter To A MovieClip?
Flash Pro CS5 I have a plan view png made into a movieclip of a car which follows a motion guide changing direction as it travels. I select the MC in frame 1 and go to properties, filter section is currently empty and I select dropshadow from the filter choices, adjusting the angle and opacity. Looks good test movie and car runs without shadow after fr1. Methinks I need to apply it to the car in the last frame (no other keyframes between by the way), I select the car and then cannot see how to apply the filter that is now showing in the properties window. How does one apply an existing filter to a movieclip ?

Is this then what is needed to get the car to have the shadow cast north west throughout its journey ? Applying the filter to the MC at start and end of the tween ?

ActionScript 3.0 :: Cut Up A Movieclip / Existing Bitmap Into Squares?
If an image is 800 by 600, copy the image's bitmap data and divide the image into, say, 20 by 20 squares, each having a reference to be manipulated later. Im guessing you have to use bitmapdata for that, unfortunately I dont know how to copy bitmapdata from an image's arbitrary x and y coordinates and for a certain width/height.

IDE :: Changing Pre Existing MovieClip's Instance Behaviors
I've created a graphic and have multiple instances of the graphic on the stage. I've recently decided to change the graphic to a movieClip. However, changing the original clip's type to movieClip doesn't apply the change to all instances that I've already placed on the stage; they're still all graphics.

The only way I've been able to fix it is by manually selecting each one and changing their instance behavior from 'graphic' to 'movieclip'. Is there a faster way to do this, be it a command or an actionscript code? Anything that doesn't require me manually changing each instance would be a huge time saver.

ActionScript 2.0 :: Duplicate MovieClip - Existing TextFields Not Visible
Within my code, I have a series of movie clips that are dynamic text fields created with the createTextField call. The text field is dragged and dropped onto a box. At that point I want to create a duplicate of that text field and to then position it on top of the box. The code appears to be creating a duplicate of the original clip and the traces are all successful, however, the actual movie clip is not displayed anywhere on screen. I feel that it has something to do with the depth. Originally, I was passing this.getNewHighestDepth to duplicateMovieClip but that seemed to result in my existing text fields disappearing instead!

function fnTagOnRelease(){
delete this.onMouseMove;
if (eval(this._droptarget) != mc_DropBox){
//spring back to original position
[Code] .....
