    Does anyone out there know Flash? Is there an easy way to take a colored Flash intro/page and turn it into grayscale while maintaining the animations and such? Thank you.

    B, the problem is I don't have Flash anymore. I have to buy the latest version. I'm willing to pay someone to do this for me.

    Let me know if you are able and if you are interested.

    I'm pretty sure you sent me AIM contact info, I don't have that. Plus, I checked out Flash and tryed everything I know, and I can't seem to do it. You need to export every piece and convert it too greyscale.

    Are you talking about 100% finished animation. Did you make it, what kind of file is it?

    Now that I checked it out, I can't find away to just convert it all to greyscale, but you have to remove the background image and convert that and replace it. That's the best I could do, I'm not exactly an expert lol

    but I do not have the image, it's in the Flash library, but not I'm my computer so I can't. Do you have the image background? usm_jpg.jpg?

    No, I wish I did. I lost a lot of my work from recent years when a hard disk crashed. Taught me to make weekly backups.

    Unless some amazing Flash expert comes along, that's the only way I can do it. I thought there was an easier way, sorrry about that.

    My suggestion would be to make a grayscale version of the image, put it on top of the color version, and animate the alpha channel in and out to give the appearance of dissolving from one to another.

    Or maybe take a black solid and make it partially transparent to drain out the color? Just a thought.
