    Default Re: Hangning a number over the edge of a letter...

    Over_hang_effect.xar

    Thanks for the responses and help, it is very appreciated. I am not sure why, but try as I might, I can not get the same effect with the attached object over-hang. I've tried converting everything to bitmaps, doing a clone, applying the clip-view, but I'm just not able to get the effect I'm looking for. The only way I've been able to do it is to "break" the circle and put one part in the back-ground and one in the foreground (as you can see) If anyone can show me how to do this seamlessly, I'd sure appreciate it!

    Coleen you can put the circle shape behind the numbers and put a clone over the number. Then apply a linear transparency to make the portion of the circle over the number invisible.

    You should do this in Xara Designer and not Xara3D.

    Thanks Bill, I appreciate it. I am using XDP7, not 3D maker, but the biggest problem I am having is that when I convert the extrusion to a bitmap and try to apply a linear fill, I get a box, not the image! How do I covert it to a photo bitmap copy? I noticed that yours is "Photo Bitmap" not just a bitmap. What am I missing? Thanks again, I really appreciate it!

    Okay, I think I figured out how to get it to copy as a bitmap where I can apply a linear fill by changing it to an editable shape first, but now the bitmap copy looses its 3D effect...I mean it looses the nice "edge" (see attached image) ugh! What am I doing wrong?

    Coleen make a linear transparency rather than a linear fill.
