    drop shadow

    Can anyone suggest how to create a drop shadow on an object or image in Flash MX?

    Thanks

    Sure, just make a copy of the object, change the tint to all black and adjust the alpha on it. And offset the x and y by about 3 pixels each.

    Another way to do it, if you want to get fancy
    -copy the object and put it on a lower layer or select (move under)
    -change the tint to black
    -select expand fill edges, and select the desired description (you might want to screw around with this to get the right affect)
    -set the offset of xy coordinates to the direction you want to the shadow to be going
    -now fine tune, mess with alpha and effects like that
    good luck

    GKoonce are you using MX? If so would you care to fill us in as to where one would "select expand fill edges"
