well there's a method that will make a particular color Transparent on the Form
i.e. put a Panel and set its color to say Red
Now on Form's Property page set TransparencyKey to Red
Now the Panel will be Transparent and will appear like a window which shows what's beneath it But it won't show the forms content beneath it

check out if it helps you

What you can do is add a control on a Form and play with  opacity. It will give a merging effect

what i mean to say, You can make an imaged form and the control should also have image on it

Hi..

Though i have very little knowlegde in this (Graphics and Flash) but oyu probaply need the method which can use the Image manipulation for the Graphics appliation like games. There are two technique used in game programming for the same one is Double Buffer which make the object in RAM only and display the Select portion on screen.  Using the Old bitblt Method o Windows API.

OR
 Search for the "Virtual Form"
OR
What i have to suggest you is that look for some Graphic manupluation Topic for Game propramming which can help you find your answer quickly.
