Hi,
I am looking for an effect that would materialize a panel or picture box into existence once and event if started.  Kind of like in star trek when the are beamed back to the enterprise…. That type of look.

Thanks

Peter

Well... I think the first thing you'd have to do is learn a technique for fade in or fade out.  

This should help:

Now, as for some special effects (glittery animation as the form is fading in), I think you will need to get some kind of gif animation that loads into a transparent form (the gif will have a transparent background).  That gif will run for x seconds as a form fades in behind it.  The gif would then close.


Another option that might be easier (but similar) would be to have the form fade in over the top of the gif, and then timeing wouldn't be so critical.  Once the form is done loading you simply close the gif animation.
