One issue i have found is that when you have applied the transparency (with 24 to 32) you sometimes still have some green outlining around the image (colour bleed)
you can see this in the above example of Mario.. (the faint green line around the top of the star)
Is their a simple way to avoid this, or do we just have to edit out all the 0 245 0 to 0 255 0 range?
edit: thinking about it, we could probably use a less conspicuous colour ie. grey rather than vivid green
I could be wrong here but.....
I think this is a case of the art tools trying to be too clever.
When you flood fill the background area with your marker colour
, on collision with a border colour
the art tool blends
the colour into the borders it hits, using a generated half-tone colour - between the pure marker green and the border colour. The fact of the matter is, you are
making the marker colour’s palette entry fully transparent, so any green remaining isn’t
the pure marker colour.
You may be able to lessen/stop this effect by turning off any anti-aliasing, and blending settings.
Upping the flood fills "tolerance" (from 20 to 50), and repeating the flood fill captured the half-tone pixels for me.This post has been edited by PedrosPad: Jun 29 2005, 02:46 PM
