Review your task

In this tutorial, you will add some graphics to the Stage and apply filters to them to create a realistic-looking image of a pool table with a narrow depth of field. The balls in the foreground and background will appear out of focus, as if seen through a camera.

The completed FLA file

To see the completed FLA file (Filters&Blends_finished.fla), browse to one of the following locations:

  • In Windows: Hard Disk \Program Files\Macromedia\Flash 8\ Samples and Tutorials\Tutorial Assets\Creating Graphics\ Filters and Blends

  • On the Macintosh: Hard Disk /Applications/Macromedia Flash 8/ Samples and Tutorials/Tutorial Assets/Creating Graphics/Filters and Blends

Open the starter document

Now that you have seen the document you will create, it is time to create your own version of the document. The first thing to do is open the starter document, which contains the graphic objects you will use with the filter and blend features of Flash.

In Flash, select File > Open.
