Chapter 3. Building a Score > Using Sprite Ink Effects

Using Sprite Ink Effects

Director features a collection of ink effects that change the appearance of sprites on the Stage. Most of these effects are especially effective when sprites overlap. You can use ink effects to make sprites transparent, to darken or lighten them, or to apply a variety of color transformations. You can also use them to make the background of a sprite disappear (see Chapter 7, “Drawing Vector Shapes”).

Note that sprite ink effects are different from those that you can apply to bitmaps in the Paint window. Ink effects in the Paint window (which you’ll learn about in Chapter 6, “Using Paint Tools.”) change the actual cast member. Sprite ink effects affect only sprites, not the cast members on which they are based. The names and functions of the ink effects in the two sets have differences as well.
