Hi all, I have been working on an AS3-based animation app and finally have made a version public: http://www.toonfu.com/help/ Anyone interested in some beta-testing? There are still some bugs, but it's stable and usable. I'd love to get feedback from some folks who are animators.

[Flashcoders] Re: Copying an embedded sprite

2007-08-05 Thread Alan Watts
I've never had any problems using this function to return an embedded asset as a bitmap which I can then manipulate or attach. The getQualifiedSuperclassName if-statement is there because I have some assets with scale-9 enabled and they are returned as sprites, so I convert them first.
