Flash Tutorial - Windows Vista Web Theme

This is my first tutorial so tell me what you think.
If you want me to continue with the rest of the theme or need me to clarify something please ask.

This is just the first part of the tutorial covering the transparent/blurry windows in Vista.

This tutorial requires flash(duh) and some sort of photoshop, paint shop pro, etc.
Step One - Create Background

Then open in photoshop and use filter>blur>gaussian blur>
use a blur of about 7 or whatever you want.

Step Two - Flash

Use File > Import to Stage>
Import your first picture (not the blurred one)
Create a new layer
Import your second picture (the blurred one) to layer 2
Create another layer
Draw a box without a stroke
Copy this box
Create a new layer
use Ctrl - Shift - V to paste the box in the same spot on the new layer
Then right click on the third layer and choose mask
On your top layer select the box and use the color mixer to set its alpha to about 40%
This should give you the desired look. Then just edit the boxes to create a more window like look.

Heres the End Result:

More to come such as the close min. and max. buttons, task bar, etc.
