    Hi,

    I want to do a Flash animation that involved blurring type. I want to create a rollover effect where the type is blurred when in its normal mode but 'sharpens up' on mouse rollover. Can Flash achieve that or do I need to create individually/manually-created blurred type (in stages) in something like Fireworks, Illustrator or Photoshop (and then import into Flash?)

    Any help very gratefully received,

    Thanks

    Someone elsewhere has sugested 'cross-fading' a blurred image and sharp type - does this sound the right way?

    I've managed to get it to work how I want it. See it at:

    (remember to refresh :-) )

    But STILL two problems:

    1) Although the fade back to blur is instant on rollout on my PC, it only activates on my Mac if you roll out verrrrryyy slooowwwlllllyyy... are people out there finding this or not?

    2) I think because of the blur effect, you can detect the edges of the clip, it's not seamless against the blue. I have tried just blurring a selection (back in the original PNG) but still showing. Any ideas?

    Thanks to everyone
