I'm testing some of the stuff i purchased yesterday. I'm very glad, but i've got one question :

Is it possible to use motion blur pluggins with dynamicTween and LiquidArea ?

I try this and it doesn't seem to work : :|

package com.peteragentweb.atelierblick.labo {
import com.greensock.plugins.TweenPlugin;	
import com.greensock.easing.Quint;	
import com.greensock.layout.AlignMode;	
import com.greensock.layout.ScaleMode;	
import com.greensock.layout.LiquidArea;
import com.greensock.plugins.MotionBlurPlugin;

import flash.events.MouseEvent;	

import com.greensock.layout.LiquidStage;	

import flash.display.StageQuality;	
import flash.display.StageScaleMode;	
import flash.display.StageAlign;	
import flash.display.MovieClip;

 * @author peteragentweb
public class LayoutTest extends MovieClip {
	private var ls : LiquidStage ;
	private var area : LiquidArea ;
	private var area2 : LiquidArea ;
	private var menuIsDeployed : Boolean = false;

	public function LayoutTest() {
		stage.align = StageAlign.TOP_LEFT;
		stage.scaleMode = StageScaleMode.NO_SCALE;
		stage.quality = StageQuality.BEST;

		var mc : MovieClip = this["mc2"];
		mc.buttonMode = true;
		mc.addEventListener(MouseEvent.ROLL_OVER, over);
		mc.addEventListener(MouseEvent.ROLL_OUT, out);
		var mc2 : MovieClip = this["mc"];
		ls = new LiquidStage(this.stage, 900, 600, 900, 600);
		area = new LiquidArea(this, 0, 570, 900, 300, 0x0000FF);
		area.attach(mc, ScaleMode.STRETCH);
		area2 = new LiquidArea(this, 0, -550, 900, 550, 0xEEEEEE);
		area2.attach(mc2, ScaleMode.HEIGHT_ONLY, AlignMode.LEFT,  AlignMode.CENTER );

	private function over(e : MouseEvent) : void {
		if(!menuIsDeployed) {
			area.dynamicTween(.4, {y:ls.stage.stageHeight - 300, ease:Quint.easeInOut, onComplete:complete, motionBlur:{strength:3, quality:3}});
			area2.dynamicTween(.441, {y:-area2.height + 30, ease:Quint.easeInOut, motionBlur:{strength:3, quality:3}});

	private function out(e : MouseEvent) : void {
		if(menuIsDeployed) {
			area.dynamicTween(.41, {y:ls.stage.stageHeight - 30, ease:Quint.easeInOut, onComplete:complete, motionBlur:{strength:3, quality:3}});
			area2.dynamicTween(.41, {y:10, ease:Quint.easeInOut, motionBlur:{strength:3, quality:3}});
		} else {

	private function complete() : void {
		menuIsDeployed =!menuIsDeployed;


have you any suggestion, ?

Thank You.


*EDIT : perhaps, the motion doesn't affect tel liquidareas?

I don't see anywhere that you're adding the LiquidArea to the display list, so you'd never see the motionBlur. Remember, LiquidArea is NOT a container, so when you attach() objects, they're not getting added as children of that LiquidArea. This is actually a very good thing because it means LiquidArea is respecting your heirarchy and doesn't force you to nest things differently. Think of it almost like a background that, when resized/moved, forces the attached objects to move/scale accordingly.


If you want to see the LiquidArea, you can either addChild() to your container or just set the "preview" property to true.
