I think you might want to look into using a masking layer.

Can you use gif or something to make scanline effects in Flash? As a mask.

You could, but I don't see where there would be a need to.

You can import GIF, JPG and PNG into Flash. The GIF would retain it's transparency. The PNG would to, if the browser did. Moz flavors do this automagically, IE needs a bit of javascript to do PNG transparency correctly.

I'm gettin a bit confused on this thread too. I'll just try to clarify what I was saying in regard to your last post.

The window mode (wmode) set to transparent allows a Flash presentation to display without a background. It doesn't work in Opera.

If you insert a transparent GIF into a Flash presentation, it will have it's transparency in Flash. This isn't effected by the wmode however. The GIF has a separate transparency.

PNG's also support transparency, but aren't universally supported like GIF's are (Mozilla browswers have support for PNG transparency, IE and Opera don't). If you insert a transparent PNG into a Flash presentation, the PNG will have transparency in Mozilla but not in IE or Opera.

IE can be made to support PNG transparency via javascript. If the javascript is present in the hosting HTML page, the PNG will be transparent within the Flash presentation. If the javascript isn't present, the PNG will not be transparent within the Flash presentation. This is true regardless of what the wmode is set to.

The wmode and the transparency of the images inserted in Flash (GIF or PNG) don't really have anything to do with each other.

I've created an example file that I hope addresses the original post. I've saved it as a Flash MX file. I've also set the wmode to transparent in the hosting HTML file. I have to apologize, the wmode does in fact work in the current version of Mozilla, I stated this incorrectly in my previous post which I've corrected. (It's been a loooooong day)

Nice effect DigitalMedia.I think a effect like this would fit better than a picture lol.

But I wonder how can I convert a .fla file into a .swi file? its that possible.

Still looking shadowknight.
**edit**
I can't find anything so i have posted the question for you in a Swish forum, hopefully we should know today.
shadowkinight try this link:
http://sothink.com/flashdecompiler/index.htm many people say the .fla will be locked in and can't be used/unlocked without macmx, anyway see what you think.
:)
This is from Swish programer shadowknight:
No.

Closest you can do is open FLA in flash, export to SWF, then import SWF into SWiSH.

Or just open in Flash and look and copy

No direct way to get FLA into SWI, or vice versa.

thats it shadowknight...

shadowknight if ozzu can't help after you tried go to my link, signup, then ask away.
But i do know it can't be done the conversion, my answer in my last post was actually from swishzone, a develper of swish answered my question, and you don't get higher up than Roger Onslaw !! well i don't think so anyway seeing as he is on the interface of swish credits, along with David Mitchie and a few others.anyway they will help as all the people involved in the software are there to support you.

Hey dark_shadow, how ya doin :D
Flash my on-line partner decided to take a break of 6 days..which meant i was forced to take that break too,,sorry for the inconvenience dark _shadow !
I don't know if you know i share the same server so when flash is down..so am i!
I explained to flash that i needed to have my board on-line at all time especially as i was just starting to gather a few members.
When flash is off-line next time, the new board will have a re-direct to the one i'm doing now,, i only set things up yesterday so it will be a while yet, today i learn how to skin it before giving out the link... :)

I left everyone a *PLEASE NOTE* but you must not have visited me on wednesday, it went down just after dinner gmt time...haha caught you out there did'nt i dark_shadow.... :D

My new board is going to be a little different it will be more a "talk about Swish" rather than Swish tutorials and help, for that i will be inserting links to flash-x..
FusionDesigner hello,

Hi people, i'm new to this forum, but was triggered by what was said in this post. Transparent PNG not being transparent within a flash file in IE and opera. Because we are using transparent PNG in flash in IE, and surprise surprise, they are not transparent.

Now you guys said about some javascript correcting this and making transparent PNG in fact transparent within flash in IE. If you could point out where to find this, i'd owe you.

Well, that might be part of the solution. The problem is:

PNG has trouble showing tranparancy in IE and Opera, while it is no problem in mozilla. This problem also occurs when you try to import a transparent PNG file in a flash movie. It still has a background color, which is very ugly for this movie.

Now, there might be a solution for showing PNG tranparancy in HTML files. But is there also a solution for showing PNG transparancy in a flash movie? (the flash movie must be able to be displayed in IE, because i don't know what browsers our customers are running)

I hope i explained it clearly now. In this topic, forum member digitalMedia said:
