Author Comments

This is a tool which allows Flash users to draw graphics, which are then converted to API code, which can be pasted into any fla file to reproduce the shapes.
For more information, go to www.newgrounds.com/bbs/topic.php?id=319613

Drawing mode:
Full control over curve and line coordinates & shapes.
Colour picker for shape line & fill, and trace line.
Unlimited undo for easy mistake correction.
Option to clear shape completely.
Immediate update of lines and curves on dragging points.
Shape shown in edit panel during drawing.

Editing mode:
Edit line and fill colour once shape is finished.
Edit any line or curve once shape is finished.
Move finished shape to any position by dragging it.
Delete any shape.
Send shapes backwards or forwards in depth.

I'm fully aware that this will have limited appeal.

Hmmm... no no no. That's awesome! Cool. I think I know how you CAN make it (not saying I'm that skill level) which is good for me cause I'm a noob XD. I don't care though, it was cool


This actually makes my job a lot easier. I am going to attempt a game made entirely in Actionscript. I noticed your "throw it" and was inspired. I really think this is a useful tool, because I don't have to worry about making difficult shapes. Thank you very much!

Great job!
Even if it is hard to draw, its easier than just writing the code.


This sure is useful!!
It takes a shitload of time to code a drawing without this!


Great little tool you have incoparated into flash here. I thought that it was just so simple to pick up and just sketch something in your head and within moments i could draw a great looking picture. The key to this working was just how simple you set it up. I mean you just had the two boards there and just let the user take control. You could have made it alittle more entertaining by adding music or better layouts but you went the simple route and it turned out really nice.
