dropShadowFilter - Really basic question

Moderator Tag

Recommended Posts

Hi there,


I am having an absolute nightmare trying to get the dropShadowFilter working. I have no idea why it isn't as every other filter works on the same object. Do I need to add a filter first with code before I can animate it?

I have the following


import com.greensock.*;
import com.greensock.easing.*;
import com.greensock.plugins.*;


TweenMax.to(mc, 1, {dropShadowFilter:{color:0xff0000, alpha:1, blurX:12, blurY:12, distance:12}});


I have a movieclip named mc and all the setting are the defaults from the plug-in explorer. dropShadowplugin is definately inside my greensock folder. Using greensock 12.

P.s. Everything is AS2.

Please help.

Does anyone have a basic fla with this working .. as2 flash 8 so I can see what I'm doing wrong?

Thanks for your help

Ah yes, thanks for pointing that out - the AS2 flavor of DropShadowPlugin was missing an underscore on a method name. I'm so sorry for the hassle/confusion. It's fixed now (and attached).
