That's a nice trick indeed. I didn't notice the mask shader. I was wondering if Construct had masking capabilities..

It really puzzled me that, even though the mask had no semitransparent areas, the edge of the masking was kind of fuzzy (3 pixels of progressively stronger alpha before it becomes fully opaque).

Finally worked it out: the mask image is smaller than the mask sprite, and Construct blurs the edges when it resizes. Which is perfect, for a scrolling text mask. :)

I was actually wondering how to get rid of that - now I wish I had done it on purpose :)

even cooler is blur mask,

but that's pixel shader 2.0.
