The main idea is to create a window similar to the masked 1 bit windows but with soft borders.
This windows have slower performance than the masked windows, as Director doesn't support alpha channel for windows mask we will need to trick it using an screen capture of the desktop. To do this we'll need an xtra that lets us to capture the entire screen.
I'll use the “ScrnXtra” v2 witch is useful and free from the same creator of “FileXtra” Kent Kersten.
You can download this Xtra from:
