Random mask usage

Postby ESpark » Wed Oct 24, 2007 8:48 pm

This is a little odd to explain, so bear with me:

A lot of my screenshot-only layouts use masks and other effects to create visual effects: one wallpaper might look like it's being painted, one like it's being erased, etc etc.

Now, currently I need to make X layouts, where X is the different masks I'd like to use. This isn't entirely a bad thing - one mask may look good with X settings whereas another might look good with Y settings - but it is cluttered if I have 6 layouts that are identical, only the mask file is different.

What I'd like to request is the ability, in the layout editor, to say "randomly use paint1.bmp, paint2.bmp, or paint3.bmp when determining the mask".

Interesting idea and is not so difficult to implement. However, currently I'm processing the results of our beta testers for the next version and I'm not sure if this will make it into the next release. If not it will be for a future version.

It made it into the next release because it was pretty simple. The new mask effect settings now look like the following:

A random mask from the ten possible masks will be chosen.
