A Magnifying Glass

Wednesday, April 1st, 2009

This SWiSH Max2 project demonstrates how to make a magnifying glass effect that allows a section of an image (or movie clip) to be shown in ‘magnified’ detail. Try it by dragging the “magnifying glass” to the area that you wish to view in more detail.

The project demonstrates a number of useful concepts including:

  • use of a pre-loader
  • startDrag and stopDrag
  • masking
  • use of the library (sorry, the content library is not available in SWiSH miniMax2)

The project .swi can be downloaded from here:
