(This post is from my old, old, super old site. My views have changed over the years, hopefully my writing has improved, and there is now more than a handful of folks reading my site. Enjoy.)

I just made a little tutorial for Acorn 2, titled "How to Fade Out Your Image, and Other Interesting Techniques Using a Duck".

Someone asked the other day how to do some liner transparency effects in Acorn, so here it is. At the end of the tutorial, I also show a technique on how to use layer groups to have local compositing- sort of like cheap layer masks.

I should also note, that for Acorn 2 all the documentation has moved into a VoodooPad document, which has been a lot easier to add to than the Wiki I had before. And you can download that VP document, using a link found at the bottom of all the document pages.
