How do I combine layers and masks.
Posted on 2001-06-12
I have an idea for a particular type of logo using DHTML (So, IE4 and NS4+ only?)
The idea is to have the letters that make up the name of the site act as a transparent mask onto a sliding cartoon strip. The cartoon strip is only visible "through" the letters.
Where the letters are not (?), the normal document background is visible.
The cartoon is very wide, but only needs to be moved from right to left.
Ideally, the letters (which I assume are actually going to be some soft of graphical image will also have a border to them.
I think it looks something like this. This from back to front.
Letters acting as mask, fixed position.
I think I need several different masks, but I am not too sure.
Ideas and suggestions welcome (Grade B and c), solutions get you grade A.
