There's a site I'm working on http://www.droolpigs.com/April5/ I have the alpha on the navigation buttons set to 0.2 the text appears with full alpha as I want. I have a nice Old English font I want to use but when I embed the font it takes on the alpha settings of the background. I set the alpha for the text field to 1 but the text remains at 0.2. Any ideas on how to set the alpha of a container without affecting the embedded text in it or to set the alpha on the embedded text independently?
If you set the alpha of the container, that sets the maximum alpha you can reach for anything inside it. If you want the background to be a different alpha you'll need to make the background as a separate object within the container and set its alpha instead of the container.
I was thinking of rasterizing the text but I like your idea better. thanks
