Quicktip: Easy Scale-9 with GPU Render Mode

Although GPU Render Mode is quite fast, one downside to using it is that scale-9 movieClips will not work properly.

Luckily, this is easily solved by using a Bitmap and a Command created by Grant Skinner. Check here for details:


To Use:

  • Enable 9-Slice on your MovieClip
  • Import a bitmap to the stage (make sure it’s set to lossless and smoothing=true)
  • Select bitmap, and Command > Run Command
  • Select “BitmapSlice9.jsfl”

I usually just keep a copy of this script in my /assets directory. Takes only about 10 seconds to slice a bitmap, and making changes is a breeze too.
