This is a little experiment to explode a media clip to various different configurations both to and from. Tricky programming the masks but once that problem was solved it was just a case of creating the class and applying all the required nips and tucks to make it a variable effect as well as a way to go to and from the effect. Uses custom events call the finish event in the parent – just load an image in and click it to activate, after the effect has yo-yo’d back to state click again for next effect.

I had been promising myself to get this effect done for years but never gotten around to it. It’s amazingly effective on page transitions – simply draw the new screen image into a bitmap class, do an explode effect reverse to make the image appear and when complete destroy the image whilst showing the actual page.
