Image Blending Modes??

ShanestaShanesta Member Posts: 63
Is there any way to change what blending mode an image uses, like additive, screen, multiply etc? Otherwise, how are you supposed to make good looking explosions. Especially for particles.

    You can change ALPHA percentages.

    I know you can change the alpha, but thats not what I'm talking about. I mean the blending mode, like the way you can set layer blending modes in Photoshop, or other game engines. Additive blending is a very common blending mode used on explosions. This is a must have feature. Unless your explosion are 100% opague, they look dull, unless they are blended with additive mode. All games use additive blending for explosion effects, unless they are masked oldschool type games.

    I'm new here. Hello. I too was wondering if there are blend modes. I don't see them and they'd be quite nice to have.

    Thanks for the suggestion - it's on our radar.

    GameSalad introduced support for additive blending in 0.6.0. Now, in 0.8.9, we have added two additional modes: Screen and Multiply! For more information, see:
