Possible new feature: add alpha channel to images
« on: July 25, 2018, 11:35:09 PM »
I know you can use PNG with transparency, but what I'd love to see in AM is the possibility to create a fe.image object and add an alpha channel to it from a different source image. Like for example

local snapshot = fe,add_artwork ("snap",0,0,200,200)
snapshot.alpha_channel = "faded_borders.png"

so that the transparency of the snapshots is inherited from the "faded_borders.png" greyscale image.

That would open so many neat opportunities for themes.

I agree..but post this in the themes topic so that others can see it as well..it pertains more to that..

However it does need to be in a place ray will see it (here) we don't let him out often so he doesn't get to other parts of the forum much. Can't have him slacking off making our favorite front end now can we?  :P ;D
