Chapter 2. Drawing in Flash CS5 > Creating Colors and Gradients

2.6. Creating Colors and Gradients

You've undoubtedly (or not) seen and made use of the built-in color swatches in Flash, but suppose that you want to use colors that are not included in the Swatches panel. Here's where the Color panel comes into play. From this panel, you can mix and create your own color swatches, make gradients, and even apply transparency effects to existing colors on the stage.

You may have already seen the Swatches panel in action, if you used it to select fill and stroke colors from the Tools panel and Property inspector. The Swatches panel exists on its own free-floating panel as well, which you can open by choosing WindowSwatches.
