The SquareLight MCTE Pattern enables users to create flash transitions with a square light effect, similar to a burning brightness effect. The SquareLight pattern can be used on both static images/movieclips and dynamic content to create show, hide, transitionTo and transitionFrom transitions. It can also be used as a transition effect for Loader Pro V3.

Important! In order to use this MCTE V3 pattern, you need to have the MCTE V3 component too, since it is the component that handles the transitions. You need at least the 3.1.0 version of MCTE V3, you can purchase MCTE V3 here. If the MCTE that you already have is not running with this pattern you need to redownload it from - my account - my downloads area. Also you may want to order the Loader Pro V3 too, along with the MCTE and this pattern.


ActionScript: 2.0, 3.0
Flash IDE: Flash 8, Flash CS3
FlashPlayer: FlashPlayer 8, FlashPlayer 9

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.

SquareLight Pattern Description

MCTE Transition Types

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

Gain parameter functionality: normally, sets the time delay between the appearing of the next square in matrix.
The tweenDuration parameter is used to set the duration of a square transition; it represents a number of frames.

  • customParam1:String - instance name of second clip (for transitionTo and transitionFrom).
  • customParam2:String (numerical value) - width of bitmap’s  square. Default:50.
  • customParam3:String (numerical value) - height of bitmap’s  square. Default:50.
  • customParam4:String - the limit value ("0" - "100") where alpha transition begins and brightness transition ends (only for transition show/hide).

Quick Tip
Use the Loader Pro V3 and create impressive slide shows with the square light effect.
