Opacity?

hi, I think it would be nice if you had opacity (transparency) in the paint editor.

Ditto that! Ditto used Transform! Ditto transformed into the opacity suggestion! Ditto used Opacity Slider! It's super effective! LOL.

In other words, +1.

Ghost effect

I've been listening to…
Ogre Battle // Queen // Queen II // Heavy Metal, Hard Rock, Progressive Metal
Orion // Metallica // Master of Puppets // Heavy Metal, Thrash Metal, Instrumental
Damage Inc. // Metallica// Master of Puppets // Thrash Metal, Heavy Metal
Snow (Hey Oh) // Red Hot Chilli Peppers // Snow (Hey Oh) // Soft Rock, Acoustic
Who Wants To Live Forever // Queen // A Kind of Magic // Power Ballad, Soft Rock
I suggest you listen to…
For a influential playlist: Damage Inc and Orion. Both of these songs are part of the album that revolutionized heavy and thrash metal forever.

…is often not enough. Sometimes you want something to stay transparent after the scripts have been stopped, or have multiple layers of diferrent transparencies in one costume. Stamp flattens it to Bitmap on the screen if it's in Vector, and you might want to use the ink layer for something else.

but if there was an opacity tool, you could have certain parts of the costume ‘ghosty’, not the whole sprite.

Exactly what I said, but simplified.

If you're using bitmap, then why can't you just use the paintbrush tool and choose the top right color?

That erases it completely. It's NOT semi-transparent.

Then couldn't you use white or whatever color the background is?

Because the background isn't always white, and what if a sprite goes behind the sprite in question? What if the background changes?

^ See the underlined portion.

But my question is how many times would a sprite go behind the sprite in question?

Sometimes you want that to happen, to make special effects, and when you have a gradient to the background color, it looks cruddy when, say, clones overlap the same costume. Again, the background could change, or what if you're using a photo, or a different picture, or how about using video blocks?

We still could use this. I'd like to integrate it into my featured project to improve sensing and make it look better. It would NOT look better with blue on it, because the bubbles would be opaque, covering up each other and the video in the background.

The opacity IS possible in vector… but I don't exactly know how some people do it. People have done it before… but I just don't know how…

An opacity tool would be great- perhaps a more advanced color picker too?
