    Here’s the command center, that’s right I code in a storage closet and that’s my cat Jack. ¬†His hobby is to keep me from using the keyboard¬†or mouse.

    I also wanted to share this snippet of AS3 code that lets you choose a color and then convert pixels of that color to transparent pixels:

    public static function MakeTransparent(source:*, color:uint = 0x00FF00FF) : BitmapData
    // Get the bitmap data so we can fix it
    var bitmapData:BitmapData
    if (source is Class)
    bitmapData = FP.getBitmap(source);
    else if (source is BitmapData)
    bitmapData = source;

    // We aren’t use the transparent feature, hence the color
    var bitmapDataNew:BitmapData = new BitmapData(bitmapData.width,
    bitmapData.height, true, 0x00000000);
    var pt:Point = new Point(0, 0);
    var rect:Rectangle = new Rectangle(0, 0, bitmapData.width,
    var transparent:uint = 0x00000000;
    var maskColor:uint = 0x00FFFFFF;
    bitmapDataNew.threshold(bitmapData, rect, pt, “==”, color, transparent, maskColor, true);

    return bitmapDataNew;
