Full Version: Animation help!! Slide an image and hide it.

After many hours of trying, I am biting the bullet and asking for help. I need to slide a fanart image up without any of the image showing below it. It is going to have a diffuse on it so I cant use a diffuse workaround to hack it to work. Please help me.


Here is what I want (basically). Image slides up and back down without any image being shown where the red X's are.

Step 1:

Image

Step 2 (on Focus):

Image
Have you tried to display the background image, then the fanart and then the background image again but this time using a diffuse so only the bottom part is shown?

Dont quite understand hitcher, sorry.
Like this where background_diffuse.png is used to hide the top allowing the fanart to appear.

<control type="largeimage">
<posx>0</posx>
<posy>0</posy>
<width>1280</width>
<height>720</height>
<texture>background.png</texture>
</control>

Fanart code here

<control type="largeimage">
<posx>0</posx>
<posy>0</posy>
<width>1280</width>
<height>720</height>
<texture diffuse="background_diffuse.png">background.png</texture>
</control>

Rest of code here
