Selective tinting -help-

Hi Everyone,

I have some bitmap characters that I need to tint. They have a black outline. I’ve figured out how to do -almost- what I want using as3. The problem is that the outline tints too. Does anyone know of a way to exclude the black (or any other color for that matter) outline from tinting other than by copying the outline to another movieclip and overlaying it? There could be thousands of movieclips and that’s not practical for what I’m doing.

Thank you in advance,
