Default How do I...? Make the screen black at the beginning? And black at the end? - 09-30-2010, 08:24 AM

Does anyone know how to make the animation movie-like?

First we have a black screen, totally black, and yes I mean it, it's absolutely black, then the black fades away... and the animation is shown...

Then at the end, when it's done, the whole animation fades into black.

How do I achieve this kind of effect?

Please help, I would appreciate it!

Add a square from the "objects" object list, and set its color to black. Then turn it and move it so that it is right up close the the screen. Set it's vehicle property to "camera", its isShowing property to "false" and its Opacity property to "0". Now in the method where you want it to fade to black, set the square's isShowing property to "true" with a duration of "0", then set the Opacity to "100" with a duration of whatever you want (you can probably just keep it at default 1 second). Then when you want to fade back to normal, set the Opacity to "0" for the same duration as before and then set the isShowing property back to "false" with the same duration of "0".

Did that solve your problem?
