Chapter 8. Compositing Images > Using Ink Masks

Using Ink Masks

Another ink effect, called Mask ink, can also be used to composite a sprite. Mask ink is unusual in that it requires a second cast member—an ink mask—as a reference. An ink mask is essentially a map that shows Director which parts of a sprite to make transparent and which to leave opaque. Director always looks for the ink mask in the same place: in the Cast window, directly following the cast member that the sprite refers to (Figure 8.16).

Figure 8.16. An ink mask must always be placed in the Cast window immediately following the cast member it’s associated with.
