blurring an image - Macromedia Flash

Thanks, Jason but I need to know how. I assume you create a blurred version of your image in photoshop but I can't figure out how to mask it to blur and the "bar" follows the mouse (note: I do know how to get the movie to follow the mouse). Help?...

    That's a lot of information to post here if I were to go into detail. That
    movie you're looking at broaches so many different concepts. I'll tell you
    where to look for each thing.

    To get a movie to follow your mouse you can use many different approaches.
    One is to detect that the movie has been rolled over and then add an
    onEnterFrame event to follow the mouse until it gets to a certain location
    and then delete the onEnterFrame. Second would be a simple startDrag()
    action. The movie you're looking at is a custom solution which is no doubt
    a little more complex. When I think of how I'd do it, I think it would
    involve detecting the rollover and then having a class that handles the
    following of the mouse up and down within a range.

    For the graphic effect, chances are what you're looking at is 2 different
    images and a mask is resized along with the movement of the horizontal bar
    to show 1 of the two. For this you'd put the images on top of one another
    and mask one of them. As you move your mouse have the mask movie clip scale
    to reveal the topmost image. There is also an AS way to do this using
    setMask().

    You coul always just put a rectangle symbol over an image, change it's alpha
    to 50% or so and then scale it when the bar moves. Wont' give you the lined
    effect though.

    Like I said, going into detail would take forever. Look on [url]www.flashkit.com[/url]
    for examples that may help you.
