fade text in CD Art Display by OtisBee fade text in CD Art Display by OtisBee
hopefully this short tutorial will help you to easily create a nice and decent looking fade-in/out effect for your skin's textlines.
if there's anything you don't understand, please say so and i'll try to help.

you know, i once had the idea of creating a tutorial for each and every function or feature there is in CD Art Display, but considering the huge amount and also my wish to make these tuts as visually pleasing and understandable as possible, i only managed to create a few.

however, i very much appreciate the fact that you now think that those few tuts are great already.

thanks a lot, dude. :w00t:

Just a short addition for those which had problems with point No.3 of the tutorial:

When you have copied the skin's desired part (No.2), just add a mask to it (3rd icon from the left in the Layer window).
Then click into the new applied mask (shown right from your layer in the window) and apply a white/black/white horizontal gradient to it in the working space.
Continue with step No.4...

That worked good for me. :)

hmm, .. white-black-white wouldn't look too good if your skin's background is green (or any other color) for example, would it?

Sure. But you use it just for the mask. The black parts will be transparent and the white parts show the solid color of the background. :)
Just tried it again with my Bottomless (the old were shitty), and it looks very good.

:) I redid "Bottomless" recently. Take a look at the mask.png's. It works good there.
See you, my friend. :bye:
