Ok question. Anyone know of a good way of creating a glass effect in KoolMoves. I have tried the ole' gradient with transparency, doesn't look very good. I don't want a bitmap or to import an image, I want to create in KoolMoves. Any ideas would be appreciated.


oh-and I want something to be able to pass under that glass

You probably already thought of this but reflections are important in making believable glass. As in the case of a body of water (e.g. a lake) the reflected image will be very transparent. Another words, it takes on a lot of color from the lake. Depending on the shape of the glass surface the reflection will be destorted, just as a brass door knob makes its reflection look like a fisheye lens view. And also there are a lot of highlights on glass, like the highlights caught by a persons eye.
