Here's my first go at a Flash 8 glass effect. In general I'm not the biggest fan of the Bevel effect, but in this case I just used it as a helper for the displacement map and voilá - doesn't look too bad. I will show more of this stuff during the Flashforum Tour 2005 - my session about bitmaps and beyond will be on September 21st in Düsseldorf.
You can download the source code here - you will only be able to open the fla if you are a lucky owner of Flash 8 already. Though I've put the script in an external .as file so you can at least study it.Posted at September 07, 2005 05:56 PM | Further reading
