getBounds() on DisplayObject not functioning properly

Well in fact, it is… or is it not ? depends on how you see it. The trouble If using masks or objects that have their “visible” property on true but “alpha” at 0.0, it is taken into account into the calculation of the bounding rectangle. Even objects that are outside of the masked area […]

Filters Manager in AS3 (BitmapEffects Manager) or how to add, remove and modify a filter from a DisplayObject

First of all, to understand the need of a centralized manager for filters in flash, we need to understand how filters are set on a DisplayObject. To set a filter, we first need to create a BitmapFilter object : [sourcecode language=’as3′] // create a new blur filter var blur:BlurFilter = new BlurFilter(4.0, 4.0, 1); [/sourcecode] […]

Rotate a MovieClip/DisplayObject around a point

This is something I have been looking for for a couple of hours. When I finally found out how to do it the way I needed to do it, I stepped on a blog explaining that a function actually exists for that specific need (see This function is part of the fl package (comes […]

Matrix Fall X (démo et port du Matrix Fall 3D en c++)

Cette démo est en quelque sorte l’objectif que je m’étais fixé pour me lancer dans le c++. Pas mal de petites nouveautés et notamment l’utilisation de l’OpenGl, contrairement à DirectX utilisé pour Matrix Fall 3D. C++ oblige, comparé au vb, la puissance est multipliée par 10x, ce qui m’a donné l’occasion d’y ajouter un petit […]
