Flash water mouse trail effect

Posted on 2007-10-01

I saw a water effect on a website that when you mouse over it, it creates like a ripple trail behind the mouse.

But it's only in Java, does anyone know how to do this in Flash 8? I've seen other examples, but they only show how to add a ripple effect to an image, but not with mouse trails...

Here is a link to an example (this is what I want to do, but in Flash)

Thanks so much!

    Hi aneeshchopra,

    That seems to be what I'm looking for, but it looks like you saved it under Flash CS3, I only have Flash 8.

    Are you able to provide the Flash 8 source-code?
