Thread: I'm trying to apply a filter to a movieclip but the option is grayed out.

  1. #1

    I'm trying to apply a filter to a movieclip but the option is grayed out.

    So my title kinda says it all but I have a movieclip and I want to apply a blur effect to it but the add filter button is grayed out for some reason. Does anybody know why that would be? I'm not using any actionscript or anything, it's an animation project but I needed a blurry image in the background and I figured using the movieclip filters would be the easiest way to do it and it turns out no...!

    Thanks Advance!

    Hi,

    You will probably need to convert your graphic to a movieclip and then you can use code like this.
    I imagine the properties options will not be greyed out if you convert it too.
    PHP Code:
    import flash.filters.*;

    var 
    clipBlur:BlurFilter = new BlurFilter(333);

    clip.filters = [clipBlur];
