[AD] 8 Differently Identical Semi-Transparent Squares

Recommended Posts

The description for this forum is "Post your fantastic designs for all to see".

 

Well I don't claim that this is a fantastic design, but it is (to me) an interesting experiment…

I was troubleshooting a file for someone else who couldn't see why an element in their design was transparent, when the transparency tool clearly said 'none'.

 

That got me thinking about the number of different ways in which an object can be made transparent in AD - I thought of 8 examples, and I suspect that there are others! Some are a little convoluted, but most probably have their place at one time or another.

 

The experiment shows me just how versatile AD is, but I think that comes with a cost: If I didn't know how the transparency had been applied to each of my 8 squares, it would be quite a task to figure out the various methods used - especially to a newcomer to vector graphics, or Affinity.

 

Can you find other ways that I've not discovered?

Hi yes interesting exercise.. i just could not resist having a look..had to scratch my head a bit but then...

what about the transparency tool itself with each end set at 50%

Nice. Can't think of any other ways. In fact, I didn't know about a couple of the methods.
