Can Construct 2 use mask?
I would like to use it for life meter.
You could probably manage something similar with effects/layer effects, but I suspect the performance tradeoff wouldn't be worth it. Can you show what you have in mind visually?
Develop games in your browser. Powerful, performant & highly capable.
.., see the Blend modes.capx example in Construct 2's examples folder.
Maybe this tutorial would help?

Thanks all for the replies.
I attach the pic for the kind of life meter I want to make.
I think blending will do the trick.
Actually for that I would use a Tiled background over a 9Patch. Is this what you are looking for?
I'd just overlay that shine as a transparent image over a tiled bg (which changes size) if you really must have the stripes.
