Bone and Spray
HERE’S ANOTHER COOL example from Adam Phillips that combines two new CS4 tools in Flash: the Bone tool and the Spray Brush tool.
What’s a little different about the Bone tool here is that it is being applied to a shape instead of a symbol object. This blade of grass is then animated by manipulating the armature inside a Movie Clip symbol.
The advantage of using the Spray Brush tool is having the ability to assign this custom grass Movie Clip as the object to be sprayed.
