at best I'm a novice AS programmer; I like to use filter transitions in my banners for webpages (clients like it). I've got by downloading a component and swapping in my images for the demo images and sometimes adding in a little AS for tweaking how it played.
Following this pattern, I've run into a problem, specifically Error 2015; I asked Flash-Filter.net about it but they have yet to respond to my email. This component is a water-drop transition effect from one banner to another. The demo program code is not complicated here it is:
// on complete method
// set wait interval
waitInterval = setInterval(nextImage, image_movieclip_array[ticker]);
oldImage = newImage;
Here’s the error message:
ArgumentError: Error #2015: Invalid BitmapData.
I set my linkage class to the Image1, Image2, etc . in the section at the top regarding parameters. I keep getting the above error 2015. Do I need to import BitmapData resources?
I found my mistake; when replacing the demo images with my own, in the library, I converted them to symbols and specified the linkage class in the properties panel. I went back and did everything again, but with one change, I actually dragged the images onto the stage, there I converted to symbol and set the linkage class. That simple step must set up the bitmap assets automatically in the background. Of course being a novice, I'm only guessing. Sometimes it helps to have dumb luck.
