The Hatch Factory (AS3) is a very simple way to add interesting patterning effects, tileable backgrounds, hatch pattern overlays, and much more to your Flash sites. We’ve included over 100+ pre-built tileable patterns for you to use and will be sharing more as they become available. You can easily create your own tileable patterns to be plugged in and used with this utility as well. With access to all of the built in blend modes in Flash and custom opacity, you can create thousands of variations with this very simple drag and drop utility.
You can easily apply any of the blend modes supported by Flash to make unique and interesting image effects, or use it as a background generator to give your site a little texture and uniqueness, all wrapped up in one simple utility. All you have to do is supply a path to the tileable image, whether it’s one of the 100+ that we provide or your own, set the blend mode you’d like to use and you can give the pattern an opacity value to further customize the look…and you’re done. You have a repeating background or image effect. You can add as many as you like, all with custom settings! If the object you’re tiling resizes, the Hatch Factory will re-tile it automatically. Have an oddly shaped object you want to tile? Hatch Factory can make a mask for it so your pattern only tiles over its true shape. It’s just that easy with Hatch Factory!
Need to throw a watermark over your copyrighted content? Done, we supplied an example of a watermark that will tile every so often. You can make it as inobtrusive (or obtrusive) as you want and have it tile as many times as needed to fit the image. Need to place tileable textures for a game you’re creating? The Hatch Factory can easily lay down repeatable textures for you across a layer. Need to add it dynamically out of the library, no problem. We’re sure you will find infinitely more creative ways of using the Hatch Factory than we will, we just want to supply a simple-to-use utility to put the power in your hands. Add a little texture to your site today! It will thank you for it.
Thank you and enjoy!
