overlapping opacity values.

  • If i have say 2 sprite instances set to 50% opacity and they are overlapping, the overlapping part combines the opacity of each so that area looks 100% opacity. Is there a way to prevent this, some blend mode or something?

    Thanks.

  • I am pretty sure opacity applies to the entire sprite so any edges that overlap would have that same opacity setting.

    You could try a mask effect for a smoother blend or you could fade your sprite edges in the editor so they blend closer to what you want.

    I fade the edges in my masks using the eraser in the editor set to something like 10 so it leaves just a hint of the sprite color and then decrease that to 1 as you move to the inner edge where the color should be full.

  • Sorry, you missunderstand.

    If i make a square sprite and colour it blue and set the objects opacity to 50%, then spawn another one and the two move and overlap, where they overlap each other will appear to be 100% opacity or solid blue, where they arnt overlapping will still appear 50% opacity.

    I'm looking for a way so the opacity is maintained at 50% regardless.

    Thanks.

    I didn't misunderstand.

    I offered you a way to feather the edges so they blend and that would reduce the effect you are seeing.

  • Never mind.

    Any one else have any ideas?

    Thanks.

  • I can post pics to:

    Both of those sprites are set to 50% opacity.

    Sorry for trying to help you and good luck and have a nice day!

    Thanks.

  • get them sprites into their own layer and manipulate opacity from the layer properties, instead of sprite's. oh lord, please dont let me be misunderstood.

  • lol. I'll give it a try thanks.

  • Destination out, we meet again. Cheers for the capx korbaach
