Creating cut-outs in Artworks.
A full list of all our products with
prices and latest version numbers.
This issue of The Archimedean was created entirely
in Iinpression Publisher, using an Acorn Rise PC600
with 10Mb RAM and a 200Mb hard disc. All
proofing and layout checks were output on a BJC-
600. Final negative film was created from PostScript
output files through a Linotronic 300 imagesetter.

The new Rise PCs from Acorn
remove the two most serious
factors limiting previous
Acorn computers from competing in
the world of professional desk top
publishing, namely RAM restrictions
and video quality. While it is still
perfectly possible to create very com-
plex DTP documents on the old
machines, there is no doubt that it is
pushing them to the limits.
Of course Impression Publisher can
handle 24 bit colour even on older
machines, and add-ons like Colour-
Card provide a half-way house
towards the screen capabilities of the
new machines. So you can create
magazines like the Archimedean on
older Acorn hardware, but there's no
doubt that it's even easier and
quicker using a Rise PC.
No computer is perfect. There are
some annoying omissions. The oper-
ating system has had only a super-
ficial update, when there are a dozen
or more, often relatively minor,
changes that could have been made
that would have significantly
improved the usability of the desk-
top. Things like long filenames. To
implement this feature 'cleanly'
would require major work. But there
are other ways to implement this
feature, which may be more of a
'bodge', but that in practice would be
perfectly acceptable, and backwards
Previews appearing in the press of
the_ next version of Windows reveal
that it does provide long filenames,
and does so on top of DOS, which
shows it is perfectly feasible. Propor-
tional scroll bars, solid window
dragging, pop-up menus, an icon bar
and anti-aliased fonts have all been
seen on versions of Windows. OK,
Acorn may have plans to improve
Rise OS, and Windows 95 isn't
around yet, but Acorn have to keep
on the ball.
Overall the new computers are com-
petitive with the alternatives around.
To be merely competitive sounds a
bit feeble, but in fact, given the rate
of change in this industry, it is an
amazing feat. Acorn still have an up-
hill struggle persuading new cus-
tomers that the Acorn solution is best.
However the plain fact is that for
existing Acorn users there is now a
machine that will truly stand up
against the very best of the alterna-
tives - Pentiums and PowerMacs.
Using a RiscPC with our products, we
can still impress the hell out of even
the most die-hard Mac or PC user.
As far as compatibility is concerned
there are few problems. Much of our
older software and hardware was not
fully compatible with the new
machines. However we have created
new versions, where needed, of all
our key products. There is an article
covering the compatibility issue in
more detail later in this magazine.
Other new products covered in this
issue include the new Formulix math-
ematical formula editor, the Lark 16-
bit sound expansion card, the latest
addition to the Impression range and
the TV Tuner.
Finally, one of the most exciting
developments is our Movie Magic
MPEG board for the Rise PC. This has
been designed in association with
Online Media, who use similar tech-
nology in their Set Top Box.
All these and more can be seen on
our stand at Acorn World - •we hope
to see you there; Wembley Exhibition
Centre, Stand 110 and 112, October
Spread the word
The increasing interest in DTP on Acorn computer systems has led to the
launch of a new magazine. The aptly titled Acorn Publisher is a subscrip-
tion only journal and is intended to provide information on all aspects of
publishing on Archimedes and Rise PC platforms.
The stated aim of the publishers is to cater for everyone, be they absolute
beginners or seasoned professionals. Future issues are expected to
include news, features and reviews, as well as practical, on-going
workshops concentrating on graphic design and printing technology.
The magazine will be published by Akalat Publishing, six times a year and
costs £24.95 for a full year's subscription in Britain, the Channel Islands,
Northern Ireland and BFPO.
CC are not involved in the venture in any way, but it sounds interesting -
more details are available from Akalat Publishing, PO Box 231 , Barton,

Three for one
Computer Concepts, Clares and lota have got together to create a
bundle of some of the best pieces of software for Acorn RISC
computers in their class. The imaginatively titled Musketeer pack
includes the latest versions of Impression Style, Schema 2 and
Datapower, and is intended as a direct upgrade for Acorn Advance.
The normal price for the three software packages on their own
would be £385 + VAT, but they can now be purchased for only £249
+VAT, a saving of over £150. Registered owners of Acorn Advance
can buy the Musketeer pack for £199 + VAT, making it an ideal way
to upgrade their system.
The Musketeer Pack will be on sale at the forthcoming Acorn
World Show at Wembley, but can also be obtained directly from
lota Software at lota Software Ltd, lota House, Wellington Court,
Cambridge. CB1 1HZ. Tel. 01223 566789. Fax. 01223 566788.
If you're stuck for space with your A3000, or need to add a
genlock board to your computor, then now is the time to take
advantage of two special deals.
The A3000 Expansion box can house up to three half-width, or
two full-width expansion cards, vastly increasing the versatility of
your computer. The box adheres to the MEMC data rate, making
it ideal for expansion cards that require fast access across the
podule bus, such as LaserDirect.
The Expansion box has been reduced in cost from £139 + VAT
to only £99 -i- VAT whilst stocks last. It includes a 12V power
supply designed specifically for cards whose power requirements are not met by the A3000. Fitting instructions and a
utility disc are included in the price.
Wild Vision's series of Chroma Genlock boards provide facilities for mixing computer output with any composite PAL
video source. There are many uses for the cards including presentations and promotional videos. Computer
animation can be incorporated into live video opening up a whole world of possibilities. All versions of the Chroma
Genlock board are down from £249 + VAT to only £149 + VAT.
MIDIMax is a single width MIDI expansion card, designed to
provide a stand alone MIDI solution at a low price. It can be
connected to a wide range of compatible equipment, including
drum machines, keyboards, synthesizers and sequencers. The
software is licensed from Acorn and can be used with all RISC OS
applications such as Serenade and Rhapsody (see left).
The card is fitted with the usual MIDI In, Out and Thru connectors,
plus a second Out connector to simplify the connection of multiple
interfaces. Full driver software is included and the complete
bundle costs £69 (£88.12 inc. VAT & carriage).
Although Artworks is one of the easiest drawing packages to use, the
mouse is by no means an ideal input-tool and can often stifle the artist's
creative flow. Those who wish to draw more naturally can now do so
using the newly launched ArtPad from Wacom.
The ArtPad is an A6 graphics tablet than plugs into the computer via the
serial port, making it an ideal option for all types of Archimedes. The pad
is completely pressure-sensitive which allows the user to treat it just like
a traditional writing instrument.
Special pressure-sensitive drivers for the ArtPad and other Wacom
tablets will be available shortly from Computer Concepts and allow them
to be used with many packages such as Photodesk, DA Picture and
Studio24. A new tool is also available for Artworks which allows
freehand drawing with precise control of the line thickness.
Prices for the graphics tablets with drivers start at less than E200+VAT for the A6 ArtPad. Larger tablets are available
- an A5 tablet costs E399+VAT and an A4 tablet £549+ VAT. Special bundles consisting of Spacetech's Photodesk,
the Eesox Artworks Pressure Tool and any one of the three tablets will also be available.
As from October 1st, the Canon BJC-600 is reduced by £80 to only £389 + £10 p&p + VAT. This means that full 24-bit
colour printing is more affordable than ever. The BJC-600 is an A4 printer that connects to the computer via the
standard parallel port. TurboDrivers are included in the deal to ensure optimum performance and quality.
Computer Concepts will be attending the following events so, as they say, book now to avoid disappointment.

When Computer Concepts
brought out the Colour
Card Gold, they set a new
standard in graphics capability and
performance. Now they have done
the same for another field of hard-
ware: the recently launched Lark
expansion card gives Acorn owners
the opportunity to exploit high qual-
ity digital sound to an extent that
matches, and in some cases exceeds
that available on other platforms, and
even professional systems.
When the Archimedes 300 series was
first launched, its sound system was
considered state of the art, offering
21kHz stereo sound. Whilst its sound
system was fundamentally only 8 bit,
a clever technique called 'logarithmic
sampling' allowed it to achieve far
better quality than its competitors.
As technology has progressed,
however, this specification has fallen
behind the leading edge. With the
increasing demand for multimedia
products. Computer Concepts real-
ised that users required higher

the features of this card were covered
extensively in the last issue of the

ful tools with
Midi Max (see
the news sec-
tion) allows the
access to MIDI
at a previously
level of perfor-
quality, more flexibility and better
functionality - perhaps most impor-
tantly the ability to record sound on
their computers. In close association
with Wild Vision, Computer
Concepts developed four products to
remedy this situation.
The first of these was the Eagle M2
multimedia expansion card. Offering
Finally, the Lark expansion card is
aimed both at the audio and compu-
ter music enthusiast, and at those
needing high quality digital sound for
semi-professional and professional
uses. It offers both 16 bit audio sam-
pling and playback, as well as a full
functioned MIDI port. Stereo line-
level input and output are provided
as standard, so the card can be con-
nected to a HiFi, external amplifier or
tape recorder. The user may also
connect headphones, a microphone
and has the option to use the internal
speaker for sound output as well.
The card is bundled with the Audio-
Works sample manipulation package
so the user can exploit the power of
the card to the full.
The Lark provides 14 sample rates
from 5.5kHz to 48kHz allowing the
user to perform 1 6-bit mono or stereo
sound sampling at an unparalleled
level of quality and versatility.
Sampling can be done either in the
background with real time on-screen
update of the waveform display as
the sample is captured, or straight to
a disk file. With the latter option, you
may record a sample which is many
times the size of memory.
Once the sampling has been per-
formed, AudioWorks can be used
both to perform simple edits (such as
cutting out unwanted sections or
altering the volume), or to add com-
plex effects (see below).
Recorded sounds are ciystal clear
and their quality is comparable to
that of CD or DAT - indeed the sam-
ple rates ('which play a great part in
determining the fidelity of the sound)
of both of these two recording media
are also offered by the Lark.
... and playback too!
Whilst recording sound is obviously
useful, the Lark would not be nearly
such a valuable addition to an Acorn
machine if it did not offer the ability
to replay the sound at the quality at
"which it was recorded.
Although, using AudioWorks, sam-
ples can be played back through the
internal 8 bit sound system, owners
of the Lark can also exploit its high
quality sound output system to play
back up to 16 channels of
The difference in sound quality
should be instantly apparent to most
users. Techniques borrowed from the
world of HiFi design were used to
minimise the distortion and noise
present on the sound output, and the
higher sampling rates available
(again, up to 48kH2) and the true
sixteen bit stereo sound system all
add up to produce a quality of sound
output that Acorn owners have never

lection of tools
and effects that

from simple -
such as crop-
splicing different portions of sound,
to complex effects such as ramping,
pitch and amplitude bends and echo.
It can simultaneously manipulate and
play back as many samples as
memory and hardware will allow. It
even provides a real time spectrum
analyser and oscilloscope, as well as
control over the Lark's many sam-
pling and playback options.
Those familiar with the world of
computer controlled music cannot
have failed to appreciate the impor-
MIDI to any
system. It is
ideal way of giving full control over
any MIDI device attached to it. 'In',
'Out' and 'Thru' connectors are all
provided. The card is fully Acorn

In addition, the Lark card can be

The ultimate in sound cards
The Lark is designed for use with all
computers in Acorn's 32-bit range
that are capable of taking a single
width podule. You will, however,
require an ARM 3 (or better) and at
least 4MB of memory to use sound
playback. The new, more powerful
Rise PC range are better able to
exploit the full functionality of the
Lark, but the faster and more power-
ful your machine is, the more you
will be able to take advantage of its
For only £199 (±233.83 inc.VAT) you
can transform your computer into a
digital a.udio system offering facilities
that would not be out of place in a
modern studio. It is the only expan-
sion card of its kind that provides
both l6-bit recording and playback,
as well as a full specification Midi
port. AudioWorks is available on its
own for ±49 +VAT (±57.57 inc.) - it
can be used as a stand-alone appli-
cation, without extra hardware.

Art for ArtWork's sake ...
Software Developers' Toolkit
One of the most important features of
Artworks, which is often overlooked
by the user, is its modular design. If
you use ArtWorks, you may have
noticed that when it loads, it
does so as a series of
modules. These are the
various tools available
within Artworks that go to
make up the Toolbox
This approach means that it
is relatively easy to add
(and remove) features if
necessary. If, for example,
someone required a poly-
gon generating tool, the
appropriate modules and
resources could be added simply
to the Artworks application.
Computer Concepts are keen to see
third-party developers producing
their own tools for ArtWorks and
have designed a special program-
mers' toolkit to facilitate this process.
This consists of detailed information
on the structure of ArtWorks
modules, plus notes and actual code
in order to design your own.
There are already a number of
modules that have been produced by
third parties, and these include a tool
to allow input drawing via a graphics
tablet, plus a module for 'magnetic
objects' allowing items to be snapped
to any shape.
Artworks vl.5 on CD
Artworks vL5, the latest version of
Computer Concepts' graphics illustra-
tion program, is now available on
compact disc. Whereas the program
formerly occupied 15 floppy discs, it
now comes complete on a single CD.
Having everything on the one disc
benefits the user greatly by simplify-
ing the installation process as well as
having all the outline fonts (220 in
total) available at the same time. All
fonts are supplied in both RISC OS 2
and RISC OS 3 format.
In addition, the CD version of Art-
Works also contains the entire
contents of the original ArtWorks
Clip-Art CD 1, which would normally
cost an additional ,£19 (£22.32 inc.
VAT). Artworks CD costs £.169
(£198.57 inc. "VAT) which is the same
as the floppy disc-based version.
Impression Publisher Plus is the
third new version of hTipression
to be released by Computer
Concepts and represents many years
of work, both in terms of develop-
ment and programming.
It contains all the features necessary
to produce full colour, professional
documents via one of the easiest user
interfaces available on any computer
Publisher Plus incorporates all the
new features found in Publisher,
such as irregular frames and 24-bit
colour support, artd adds important
things like OPI and EPS support. If
you are serious about your desktop
publishing then Publisher Plus will
be an essential tool.
An enhanced word count option now
provides information on the docu-
ment, chapter and story.
When you have a selected region the
swap case function now lets you
capitalise the start of sentences, capi-
talise initial letters, change all text to
upper case, change all text to lower
case, or swap all letters.
Printing pages with crop marks is
now made easier by being able to
alter the page origin of the docu-
ment. Fine adjustments can be made
via the print dialogue box to centre
pages precisely to ensure any
printers marks are displayed

Colour plays an important part in
Publisher Plus and colour handling
has been extended to provide precise
control over any shades you might

models are all supported
namely RGB, CMYK and HSV

occurrences of that colour in
the document - in the same
way as editing a style
changes all text in that style.

OPI (Open Pre-Press Interface) is a
standard system used by typesetters
to enable high quality images to be
used in documents. To use OPI, sim-
ply take your images along to your
typesetting bureau and they produce
two scans; one low res and one high
res. These files can be Apple Mac
format (PICT) or PC format (TIFF) -
Publisher Plus supports both formats.
The low res image is then dropped
into yovir document and can be
scaled and cropped like any other
picture. When it comes to typesetting
the page, the typesetting bureau
substiaites the high res image for the ^^
low res one. The obvious advantage
of this is that the low res image takes
up litde space and is therefore easier
to work with. The finished result
though, is of much higher quality.
EPS and DCS
Publisher Plus supports two new
formats, common in the world of
professional desktop publishing. EPS
(or Encapsulated PostScript) is a
general purpose picture file format
and is used on PCs and Apple Mac
computers. This makes it easier to
transfer images from other systems to
the Acorn platform.
DCS (or Desktop Colour Separation)
is a variant of EPS and is used by
applications to hold pre-separated
data. Most colour printing systems
work by printing the image using
four different inks - Cyan, Magenta,
Yellow and Black (also known as the
Key) - and DCS splits image files into .^^
four similar parts.
Impression Publisher Plus is available
now for £299 + VAT (£351.32 inc.) or
as an upgrade for all registered
owners of Impression Publisher for
£130 + VAT (£.152.75 inc.).
All new releases from Compu-
ter Concepts since October
last year have been designed
to work with the new machines
(although the Eagle card requires an
upgrade) and in many cases take
advantage of the new features.

ties, such as 16 and 24-bit screen
modes. Upgrades for all the follow-

We have been preparing a release of
our AUN printer Spooler software for
some time, but each time we get
close to release Acorn introduce new
products or new versions of IPrinters
that affect our software (such as
!Access, more recently IPrinters ver-
sion 1.22 and now the Rise PC).
Each of these has reciuired additional
work and changes, in some cases to
work around bugs that exist in the
Acorn releases. It would be pointless
making piecemeal releases and so we
have decided to delay the release of
the product until it can be made com-
patible with all the above.
Computer Concepts and
the Acorn Rise PC
We now hope to release AUN printer
spoolers, that work with LaserDirect
and TurboDrivers, before the end of
October 1994. The new software
should also be demonstrated at the
Acorn World Show.
We are only able to offer
upgrades to registered cus-
tomers (ie you should
have returned your regis-
tration card). Please return
your disc 1 and quote your

ing to upgrade and please
make it absolutely clear
which product and which

Formulix is a brand new RISC
OS application designed to
make creating formula or equa-
tions both quick and easy. It has
been written to take advantage of the
new features in RISC OS 3, and yet
also works under RISC OS 2. It offers
powerful features such as
OLE (Object Link Embed-
ding) for full integration with
other Computer Concepts
packages such as Impression
Style and Publisher.

then use a OLE link to auto-
matically load the formula
back into Formulix for sub-
Ciititlrt at UlTi
A calculated rise?
Formula editing made easy
A main part of the program is the
now familiar toolbar along the top of
the editing window that gives
immediate access to all the most
frequently used tools.
This is further enhanced by an infor-
mation line. As well as providing
help on the many powerful tools, it is
continually updated to show the user
where the caret is in the formula.

Rather than just upgrading Equasor,
Formulix is a completely new pro-
gram. Much work has gone into the
design of the application to make
sure that it is easy and straightfor-
ward to use, and yet still provides all
the powerful and versatile features
needed to create complex equations.
Not only does Formulix have many
options to control how a formula
appears, but any operation can be
assigned to a user defined key short
cut you can customise Formulix to
suit your own particular needs.
Many of the new features now fam-
iliar in Impression have been
incorporated into Formulix to make it
even easier to use. For example, drag
and drop is an integral part of
the package, complementing
' the standard clipboard which
facilitates transfer of elements
between different formulae.
Formulas have a much more com-
plex structure than a word processed
document, and this information line
is an invaluable aid for new and
experienced users alike.
unlimited undo and redo,
similar to that found in
Art Works. You never
need worry whether an
operation might modify
your formula beyond all
recognition - if you make
a mistake, just click on an
icon, and try again.
Even though Formulix is a com-
pletely new program, it can still
load Equasor documents and
then edit them with its superior
formula creation tools.
Four new outline fonts (MathGreek,
MathLogicl, MathScripl and Math-
Best) are supplied with the package.
These provide over seven hundred
mathematical symbols, from the most
commonly used to the most esoteric.
a - sm(k)
A toolbox is displayed on
screen giving instant
access to commonly used
(such as brackets,
matrices, integrals and sigmas) and
user defined formula elements.
Formulix also has a special 'free
symbol' feature which allows the
user to create their own dialogue box
containing their most often used
symbols selected from any RISC OS
The price for Formulix is only £69 +
VAT (£81.07 inc.) which represents
excellent value for money, given the
power and versatility of the software.
Registered owners of Equasor can
upgrade for just £49 + VAT (£57.58
inc.), making Formulix even better
When used with Impression Style or
Publisher, Formulix becomes one of
the most powerful technical editing
packages available on any computer
system today. If you are a teacher,
student or work in scientific publish-
ing, you'll find Formulix an essential
tool for your technical desktop pub-

When Acorn spun-off their
new subsidiary company,
Online Media, to develop a
Set-Top Box (STB) in a joint venture
with Cambridge Cable and Anglia TV,
they invited Wild Vision to take part
in the development of their video
As a result of this co-operation, CC
will be launching two MPEG expan-
sion cards based on the same
technology. Both allow full-screen,
MPEG videos with CD-quality stereo
soundtracks to be played from hard
disc or fast network.
With the addition of a suitable CD-
ROM drive, it will be possible to
watch feature-length films and music
videos. These are already available
from high street shops in VideoCD
The boards integrate fully with
Acorn's Replay system, allowing
existing Replay-aware applications
(Impression, Magpie, Genesis etc.) to
display the superior picture quality
New MPEG-enhanced versions of
existing interactive packages, e.g.
Anglia TV's Castles, Understanding
the Body will become available dur-
ing the next few
months, as well as
new titles such as
and The World's
The first board has a
Scart socket to con-
nect to an RGB moni-
tor capable of 50Hz
PAL modes (e.g. Acorn
domestic TV with a
Desktop programs may be run on
this display or on any monitor con-
nected to the computer's normal
monitor socket. The second board
allows high-end multisync type
monitors to display video-in-a-win-
dow as well as full-screen.
What is MPEG used for?
The release of an MPEG board
for Philips CD-i players quickly
established VideoCD as the new
format for standard. As a result
you'll find not only the latest
movie releases available in the
high street, but also an extensive
back-catalogue of music videos.
For much the same price as a
CD, you can buy titles like Ghost,
The Hunt For Red October, as
well as material not available on
VHS, such as Kate Bush's Whole
Another important use for MPEG
hardware on Acorn machines is
for the playback of video
sequences in educational
software. There are already
many CDs available for the Acorn
platform that make use of Replay
to show video clips, and many of
these are being re-encoded with
MPEG data. The open design of
Replay means that it will
automatically sense when an
MPEG film is being used and
uses the necessary hardware if
fitted to play it back.
The standard version of the Movie
Magic card is expected to be released
at the Acorn World Show and retail at
about ■£249+VAT while the multisync
version is planned for later release
and will cost some £100 more.
What is IVIPEG?
MPEG is a standard developed by the Motion Picture Experts Group, designed to compress full-size, full-motion,
better-than-VHS-quality video and CD-quality audio, typically by a factor of 100:1 .
Uncompressed video of VHS quality would demand data rates in the order of lOMBytes per second, so even if you
could find a drive fast enough, one minute of video would fill an entire CD-ROM!
The MPEG algorithm uses a number of sophisticated techniques to dispose of redundant data - e.g. detecting parts
of the picture that don't change in subsequent frames - allowing it to get away with only 150K/sec. The complexity
of the system necessitates the use of dedicated hardware. Although realtime decompression is currently affordable,
compression requires equipment costing tens of thousands, so don't expect to see digital recording on your
desktop quite yet - you'll have to go to a bureau for that kind of service.
The teletext services provide a
liuge resource of free and up-
to-date information on every-
thing from the weather to the current
share prices. Now, using TV Tuner,
not only can you view teletext pages
but you can also capture the data
TV Tuner provides the very latest
teletext hardware to all Acorn com-
puters able to accept single width
expansion cards. An externally boxed
version that connects via the -parallel
port will be available later for A3000/
A30x0/A4000 and A4 users.
Both versions of TV Tuner not only
receive teletext but are also fitted
with three external connectors to
allow integration into the world of
multimedia. For example, there is a
'walkman' style headphone socket so
that you can listen to the TV and a
BNC socket provides a composite
colour video signal suitable for use
with video digitisers or a suitable
monitor. An ideal partner to your

Behind the Mask
Creating cut-outs in ArtWori<s
With the arrival of Style, Pub-
lisher and Artworks 1.5,
24-bit colour is at last a
reality. All three programs can now
accept a host of different full-colour
graphics formats making them ideal
for professional work.
For those familiar with Art Works,
you'll most probably be aware that it
is a 'vector' graphics program. That is,
pictures created with it are based on
coordinates rather than pixels.
Artworks can of course utilise sprites
and other pixel images and we shall
come to this later on.
Because it is vector based, the output
from Artworks can be of a virtually
unlimited quality. If a- high-quality
output device is used such as a laser
printer or imagesetter, all lines and
curves appear smooth. Printing
sprites however, usually produces
jagged edges because they are pixel
based. Figure 1 shows the difference
between a sprite and an ArtWorks file
Artworks allows sprites and vectors
to be mixed in the same document. It
is also possible to overlay one on the
other or vice versa and it is this fea-
ture that is used to create masks.
Imagine, for example, that you want
to have a picture of a car on a white
You could load an
existing sprite into
Paint and remove any
background pixels by
hand, although this
would take some
time and you'd still
be left with a jagged
edge around the car.
Alternatively, you could load the
sprite into ArtWorks and then 'draw'
over the background with a shape.
This is how :-
Run ArtWorks and
first create a new
layer. This will be
used to hold the mask
shape and make sure
that the sprite doesn't
get in the way when
drawing. Load in your
sprite and then switch
to the new layer.
Trace around the edge of the car
(remember you can zoom in using
the magnify tool if required) using
either the line tool or freehand line
tool - Figure 2. It doesn't matter if you
aren't too accurate as you can always
edit lines later on.
Once you have a line
right around the car,
join the two ends of
the line to create a
shape. This should
just cover the car.
Now make the fill
colour of the shape
'None' (ie. invisible).
Using the rectangle
tool, draw a box com-
pletely covering (and
just overlapping) the sprite. Make
sure that the rectangle's fill colour is
set to 'None'.
Now here comes the clever part.
Select both the rectangle and the car
shape and use 'Join shapes' (from the
'Lines/Shapes' menu) to merge them
into one. Make the fill and line
colours both white and hey presto,
you have a mask - Figure 3-
If you still have any of the back-
ground showing through, or you've
managed to obscure some part of the
car, you can always edit the mask in
the usual way until you are happy
with the result.
In future issues of Archimedean, we'll
take a look at further uses for mask-
ing, including non-rectangular
'frames' for graphics and text, as well
as wrap-around text.
