|Stamp Transparent ()|
stamp transparent ()::pen
|Introduced in||2.0 prealpha|
|Removed in||2.0 alpha|
The stamp transparent () block was a pen block and a stack block. The block stamped an image of itself onto the stage, similar to the Stamp block, but with a partially transparent value depending on the block's input. Its marks could not be removed with the Clear block.
This block was only available in the 2.0 prealpha from Scratch Day 2011. It was removed to minimize the amount of blocks and its functionality being included in the Stamp block using the amount of the ghost graphic effect for the sprite.
This block can be replicated by using the ghost effect:
set [ghost v] effect to (. . .::grey) stamp set [ghost v] effect to (0)
