Help with ColorMatrixFilterPlugin

Recommended Posts

Hi -


I'm having trouble with getting a value from a movieclip.


A user of the application chooses a color from a color picker and the following code is executed.


TweenMax.allTo(targets, 0, {colorMatrixFilter:{colorize:myColor, amount:1}});


Later when the user clicks on the object i would like to set the color picker back to the color that was originally chosen. I am having difficulty getting the value from movieclip.


Thank you in advance for you help.

I think the easiest thing to do would just be to store the color inside the movie clip like so:



// do something like this when you select the color from the picker
var myColor:uint = 0xff6600;

TweenMax.to(mc, 1, {colorMatrixFilter:{colorize:myColor, amount:1}});
//give the movie clip a dynamic property to remember the color value
mc.customColor = myColor;

//do this to retrieve the color value

function getColor(e:MouseEvent):void{

// -- add code to change the color picker to the color you sampled FROM the movie clip


mc.addEventListener(MouseEvent.CLICK, getColor);
