Hi, I create dress up games with stencyl.  I cant mask which is really annoying cause then all the cloths stick together and it's an inconvenience.   I really don't want to go back to using flash because it's really clunky, so it'd be pretty nice to have masking available.

Hi there, I believe you can use a mask with the Stencyl image API. Might be worth reading through this article to get some ideas - http://www.stencyl.com/help/view/image-api. I haven't tried the masking feature myself but I have worked with Image API in the past and it works well.

i am just wondering: it is not possible to mask images using  the standard animations of an actor, right?
(i guess i need to have a look into this image API thingy. unfortunately the tutorial is a bit odd and i do not understand much after reading it)
