The Pixelate MCTE Pattern enables users to create pixelate flash transitions. The Pixelate pattern can be used on both static images/movieclips and dynamic content to create show/hide transitions. It can also be used as a transition effect for Loader Pro V3.

Important! In order to use all these included MCTE V3 patterns, you need to have the MCTE V3 component too, since it is the component that handles the transitions, you can purchase MCTE V3 here. Also you may want to order the Loader Pro V3 too, along with the MCTE and these patterns.


ActionScript: 2.0, 3.0

Working with Custom Patterns

The MCTE internal API allows us to further develop and sell patterns separately, all you have to do in order to use them as patterns for the MCTE instances, is to drag them inside your project library and use their name as values for the customPattern parameter of the MCTE.

As stated before, we sell patterns that are not initially included inside the MCTE. You can purchase those patterns without the MCTE, but they will be useless without it.

We also do develop patterns for direct customers, who want a special custom developed pattern for a specific transition. In order to get a custom developed pattern just send us an email.

Pixelate Pattern Description

MCTE Transition Types

Supports show/hide (A) transitions. Working with Loader Pro V3, supports MCTE and MCTEfade loader transitionTypes.

The gain parameter represents the maximum size of the pixel, the last state of the hide type transition and the first state in the show type transition.

  • customParam1:String - the type of pixel size calculation. A non integer value will look somehow dirty, this is why we choose to use Math.round for default pixel size approximation, however you can use the following values instead: round, ceil, floor, none.

Quick Tip
Use the Loader Pro V3 and create stunning slide shows with the pixelate effect.

In order to use this transition with the loader, you can use MCTE to pixelate over the previous image, or MCTE fade to pixelate out and in, from the previous image to the next image.

The pixelate has no presets but the default one.
