The challenge is to take a single image and break it apart into many elements that grow and colorize on roll over as illustrated in the swf above.
Full scoop inside.
Quick Video Demonstration and Tips
Watch video on youtube.com
Create an AS3 or JS script that will:
- Take a single image and break it up into a grid of tiles
- Make each tile grow and colorize on roll over
Although my custom classes will make this really easy, you can use whatever code and technology you like, it doesn’t matter.
Download the starter files (includes CS4 fla, jpg image, GreenSock, my BitmapTileGrid and GrowAndColorizeItem classes). *note the starter fla includes the updated import statements for my custom classes.

The prize will be a Really Green Club GreenSock Membership + bragging rights. I will be giving away 3 memberships to randomly selected winners.
Not only do you get all the great bonus plugins for the GreenSock Tweening Platform, but you also get special access to the files for the next version of the platform. Yes, you can use and test all the new features available in the not-yet-released v12 version of the platform. There are a ton of new features that are going to totally rock your world. I’m not at liberty to discuss them yet, but if you win you will know all there is to know about the upcoming release.
Also, I firmly believe that there are a lot of Flash developers that can benefit from seeing how certain “Flash-type” things are implemented on the other side of the fence. This is a great opportunity for all of us to learn from each other. I will be linking out to a handful of creative solutions when the contest ends. Good exposure for you.
I look forward to your submissions and comments. Any questions, just ask below. Good Luck!
ps. I will be randomly giving away an additional 2 Really Green Club GreenSock Memberships to anyone that tweets about the contest. Be sure to use @snorkl.tv in the text of your tweet. thanks!
