|Now that we have drawn the rectangular objects for the envelope and stamp, we can add a few extra touches to make the envelope look more realistic. In this tutorial, you will learn how to apply FlashR filters to our envelope and store our custom filter in the Preset Library.|
If it is not already open, then open your fla file into Flash CS4. From the previous tutorial, you should already have the two rectangles on the stage and grouped together.
Click on the envelope and you will notice that we do not have the Flash filters available in the Properties Inspector. This is because we cannot apply a filter to a simple object. Flash filters are applied to movie clips, text and buttons. We need to convert our envelope/stamp group to a symbol (Movie Clip).
