Full background video with grid overlay?


#1

Hi all,

I’m trying to achieve this kind of background video effect:
http://www.martinradich.com/
http://www.super8andtab.com/

I figured out how to do the fullscreen video, but I want to know how to make those grid overlays. Is it done with Actionscript drawing or just filling the whole stage with a transparent .png pattern?

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Ive always assumed it was via actionscript but your right, you could overlay a PNG as a bitmap fill…

Not sure which is less computational, if its a reasonably large PNG then tiling it shouldn’t take too much, compared to an algorithm to make patterns like that full screen…

First site is really cool :slight_smile: second site has some tunes 8)

Purchase and learn. :slight_smile:

But wait, FlashDen has moved the files around and most of my files don’t show right.

Anyone care to move them back to the original servers please? I really don’t have the time to go through so many files and change stuff around.

Yaiks!
I think they asked once the developers to check their files for problems when they changed the file location.

Yes, let me go through the entire collection of files and change them around. I only have 75 of them up here! :smiley:

Why can’t they stay where they are? I’ll won’t be able to update them pretty soon.

Thanks MSFX, I think I’m just going to make a small .png tile with scan lines and fill the screen with it.

It looks like the Martin Radich site has some sort of ‘coloring’ effect on it too, the dots keep changing between white and black?

Ok, here is the code that I currently have:

However, the embedded video object is on top of the tile, therefore the tile doesn’t show. How can I rearrange the z-index when it’s 100% Actionscript?

I apologize if I am rude just got tired of people not using Google… do you know how to use Google? I got the link above by typing z-index Actionscript in Google Search

it is sooooo easy. You do not need to type in forums to wait for somebodies mercy… to enlightened you…so easy. I still cannot belive that you are keep asking those questions…

according to that script your not adding anything to the stage…

The Z-order (by default) depends on the order that you add via addChild(…)

say you have…

addChild(obj1);
addChild(obj2);

then obj2 will be above obj1…

Flash does not feature any Z-sorting as such so the best bet is adding objects in the order you wish them to appear, kind of like “layers”…?


#11

Thanks MSFX. So I guess I have to write the whole code in another way (using objects / addChild) to be able to have control over the layers?

By the way donchev_a, I have been googling a lot about this but haven’t found any answers, that’s why I came here :wink: The link you gave me is about movie clips, which I am not using in this example.


#12

The link is exactly what you need man!

You have to use MCs.

just attach your fillbitmap to MCs and the flv and then swap the depths.
it is the same code.

How to make this grid?
I have tried too make it in Illustrator with rectangular grid tool, then export as png, but when I imported that png into flash, something was wrong…

Hi agan armith, sorry I haven’t experienced using International wire transfer :frowning:

One thing must have for intl. wire transfer is the Swift Code. For BCA swift code is CENAIDJA, or you may ask the BCA’s customer services to make sure. You’ll charged $35.00 transaction fee on all International Transfers (SWIFT) with minimum amount $500.00 on your account.

Here some help link regarding swift code:

Anyone have experience?
