Create a simple blend group with Dynamic Blend component


Most graphic designers are familiar with "Blend" tools used in CorelDRAW or Freehand. Blend group is a number of objects gradually changed between two base objects. It can be used to create custom gradients, distribute a number of objects to some space, create 3D effects, etc.


To benefit from this tutorial you will need:
currently two versions of this component are available:
  • version 2.0.6 ($15) - latest one, compatible with Macromedia version 2 Flash Component Architecture.
  • version 1.1.3 (free) - old one, doesn't have the newly added features.
For this tutorial, v.1.1.3 is enough.
However, new functions and features will be required for more advanced effects. Also, buildBlend() method should be used with v.1.1.3 instead of rebuildBlend() method mentioned in this tutorial.

» Description: Hmm... what to say about this one? It's reminiscent of the closing notes of the opening music from the Three Stooges done in a church organ style with a closing cymbal crash. I'll give this one away gratis, but feel free to check out my free loops and potential upcoming license-mandated ones over in the respective part of Flashkit.
