quick basic question.
When drawing a graphic, and or importing graphics.
How do you set their opacity? Seemed like in the dreaded IWEB app, you could change the opacity on graphics. I’m somehow not seeing it in the inspector. Is there something I’m missing?
Opacity of an imported graphic may be controlled via the Action ‘Fade’ (with graphic selected, Item > Actions > Fade). This was included in the shipping version of FW5Pro. I know of no control for this in the Inspector.
For an even fade, simply set both percentages to the same value. There is also the Action ‘Advanced Fade’ for more control; another shipping Action.
Note, if you want true semi-transparency, you should set th output type for the image to PNG and the colors to MILLIONS. Else, FW will flatten the image and include whatever graphic detail is ‘behind’ the semi-transparency. Both outcomes have their place and usage.
