transitions within a layout

  • How would I make a simple transition that makes the screen fade to black for a few while and then fades in again within a layout?

    I would be using this in a way to remove objects in front of the player without him saying "WTF?! objects suddenly dissappeared like bugs bunny!". So what I would like to do is fade the screen to black for a while and in that time duration, the game would destroy some objects, then fade in again, and so on. HEYLP! Whats up doc?

  • Create a layer as your topmost layer, place a full screen tiled background in black on it, and then fade that layer in and out whenever you need it.

  • Or using Krush' suggestion, but a mosaic effect instead, gradually growing larger and larger then back again. I dunno, it's a fun effect, very retro

    That's exactly how I do it. Even if I'm actually changing to another layout, I still manually make my own fader object on the top layer. I guess it just feels like I have more control over how it works that way.

  • The gradient object has all that built in, fade to transparent, fade to another color, bla, bla, bla.

    Heck if we had a radial gradient you could even do a Warner Bros. title screen.

    I'm sorry if this is a mega bump but, I want to know how to make that effect. I can't find the "fade" effect on layers.

    Thanks.

  • Well, I was actually able to do it, but just a simple fade in/out effect. What you need to do is simple make a black tilebackground covering the whole layout, then set its opacity to 0 by default, when give it a private variable which is also equal to 0.

    Now when you need to use a fade in transition, just make an event like this (lets say the private variable of black is called opa, and the black tiled bg is called black:

    If black's opacity < 100

    --> Every 1000 millisecond

    --> opa = opa + 1

    --> black's opacity = opa

    Yeah, something like that. Just do the opposite for the fade out thing.
