Shadow Issues / Image API


  • Posts: 2262
There's two different problems here.

Firstly, shadows on text are appearing cropped. Look at the numbers in the top left of the  attached image.

Secondly, shadows on images are also sometimes cropped, which is really confusing, because I'm using the image API. I'm grabbing an image of the actor, tinting it black, then changing the opacity  to give a drop shadow effect.

You'll see that the actor I is fine, but J is cropped.

Does anyone have an explanation and hopefully a solution?

About your first problem:
For a shadow blur amount of n pixels, add a transparent stroke of n pixels.

About your second problem: Add some transparent space around your animation frames.
