Is there a way in AS3 to dynamically take a MovieClip make it into a BitMap then export it to PHP to be turned into a PNG with Alpha?

I have seen in AS2 atleast the ability to take a Movieclip convert to a bitmap then export as a JPG through ASPX.

There was talk about a theory on how to do it to a PNG with transparency but no mention of AS3.

Doesn't deal with transparency though..

I think the conclusion would be that you can compile images, but not with transparency.. yet..

well as far as exporting it to a PNG that example works great thank you. Plus i recommend the link

http://www.flepstudio.org/forum/tutorials/507-swf-png-actionscript-3-0-bytearray-class.html

to anyone trying to do the same. However my only problem with the example is. You MUST add an image folder. and make sure that both the php and the image folder have permissions of 777 on your server.

Thanks for your help
