Yes,  see the visual effect command  in the docs

make a stack, name it "windowFade
make a substack, same size, name it "2ndwindow" ## dress it up with 
some pattern or something.

make a button  on the main stack "windowFade"

on mouseup
   visual effect dissolve very fast
   go stack "2ndwindow" in window "WindowFade"
end mouseup

and you will see it works.

But, see other discussion... there are bugs at 800 X 600 which I am 
seeing both on Windows and Mac... the second stack will move. i.e. it 
does not open exactly in the same screen rect, but jumps up.
