JSUI Alpha transparency, is it possible?

I realise there is a similar thread about this but I didn’t want to hijack the other thread! Is it possible to make the background of a JSUI object completely transparent using an alpha channel and how would I go about doing this?

this is not currently possible. You can still fake it by using the
same background color as in your patch.

Arse. Well, my background is patterned. No big deal as I can just remove the pattern. Thanks for telling me, though!

You can also put your pattern image as a background of the jsui. Not
sure how you repeat it though.

Ahh, I meant it had a design not a repeating pattern as such. It’s that 2D vector control example, but I’ll give it a go if I can do that, thanks!

Is this now possible in Max 5?

Sketch doesn’t support alpha channel, so it is not possible to have a
transparent jsui yet. This will change eventually.

was wondering this myself. I could have *sworn* I saw this at ircam. would be really useful.

I can assure you that you never saw that… not even at Ircam… This is still not possible at that time. C is the way to go.

still no chances for it in context of Sketch ?

Sketch doesn’t support transparency. Mgraphics does, I would recommend using it, it’s particularly nicer and easier to write 2D graphics.
