    hey!

    does anyone know how to create a mask that has different alpha values in it?

    for example say a light is shining on an object and the center is comparatively well lit in contrast to the edge of the light, i.e. the alpha value decreses gradually towards the edge.

    ive seen this effect somewhere but cant seem to place it tho.

    thanx in advance.

    The only way I know how is to not actually use a mask - just put the alpha gradient symbol on top of the object you want the light to appear to be shining on.

    A great source for image editing tricks is http://www.ozones.com , he's a little eccentric (he has about 35 different website interfaces that pop up randomly) but if you dig around a little bit, he has some great tutorials.
