The Fade behavior fades objects in and out by changing the object's opacity over time. By default, it makes an object fade out over 1 second then destroys it.
Fades run in the following order. If any of the times are 0, the step is skipped.
- The object fades in from invisible to its set opacity, over the Fade in time.
- The object remains at its current opacity for the Wait time.
- The object fades out to invisible, over the Fade out time.
- If the Destroy property is enabled, the object is then destroyed.
For example, with each time set to 1 second, the object will fade in from invisible for 1 second, wait for 1 second, then fade out to invisible for 1 second.
It is recommended to leave Destroy enabled. If disabled, the object still exists after fading out, but is invisible. If many objects are using the Fade behavior, this can build up many invisible objects over time, which gradually use more memory and CPU causing the game to slow down.
- Fade in time
- Time, in seconds, to fade in from invisible. If 0, the fade in is skipped.
- Wait time
- Time, in seconds, to wait between fade in and fade out. If 0, the step is skipped.
- Fade out time
- Time, in seconds, to fade out to invisible. If 0, the fade out is skipped.
- If enabled, the object is automatically destroyed after the fade out finishes. If disabled, the object is never destroyed by the behavior. Be sure to destroy objects yourself as necessary, as a build-up of invisible faded-out objects can cause the game to slow down.
- If enabled, the object will begin fading as soon as it is created. Otherwise the fade will not run until you use the Start action.
