Hi all,

    I need some help with creating a water ripple effect.

    I have succesfully created a ripple effect through the timeline using masks but my problem is that i am creating dynamic movieclips on the stage

    each loading a random photo (jpg). Because they are random dynamic photos I cannot create masks as I normally do for static photos.

    So if anyone knows anyway of applying a ripple effect to a movieclip with dynamic jpg being loaded, I would greatly appreciate the help.

    Thanks.

Hmm.. I havent tried it, and I don't have an answer for you doing it w/ actionscript (although I'd love to have the time to try it). However, it seems to mee that if you had a tween that was transparent enough, you could put anything underneath it by doing the mask dinamically. In other words, you would have the imported picture on the stage twice: Once for display and once for dynamic masking. Does that make sense? ....just food for thought.

That way each would appear to have the ripple effect?  unless the pics are all different sizes...
