    Transparency & Dropshadows

    Hi, well I've been considering a design for a website, which is attached below. I have figured out how to make flash have a transparent background but I can't seem to figure out how to make the dropshadow effect that you can see in the image in flash with a transparent background... I would guess its rather simple but I am unaware of the process. Any tips would be greatly appreciated!

    Thanks in advance,

    Hi, just googled this

    http://livedocs.macromedia.com/flash...=00002181.html

    took ages for it to load, but you can code it to an object

    also bumped into some stuff on importing pngs and adding tranparency to them, could be another option...

    just draw the box and add a drop shadow and export as png...

    let us know if you get it working, will be of use to others

    well apparently I did some research and found that Flash 8 actually does dropshadows, the second tab on the properties part will let you just make a drop shadow for your MC. Incredibly easy lol. here is the link: http://www.devx.com/webdev/Article/28857/0/page/3

    cheers,
