I am trying to create a splash screen where the letters (Which are in a Bitmap image) fade in, spelling out the name of the program.  I don't mind going to the extra trouble to make seperate bitmap images for each letter to fade in on a white background.  I am currently using this code to draw splash graphics:

void CSplashWnd::OnPaint()
{
      CPaintDC dc(this);

      CDC dcImage;
      if (!dcImage.CreateCompatibleDC(&dc))
            return;

      BITMAP bm;
      m_bitmap.GetBitmap(&bm);

      // Paint the image.
      CBitmap* pOldBitmap = dcImage.SelectObject(&m_bitmap);
      dc.BitBlt(0, 0, bm.bmWidth, bm.bmHeight, &dcImage, 0, 0, SRCCOPY);
}

Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks

If possible, I would like to fade in a 24-bit .bmp, but this may be too difficult.  256 color .bmp is fine.
