Hi All,

I believe that this thread deserves closure. If in a near future
a developer search the mail list for answers to this topic, her/him
will left with the false impression that it's not possible to recreate
in LiveCode the effect asked by Richmond.

Actually, the stack posted by Hermman is, from my point of view,
the solution. Visit the Livecode's forum and download the last stack
posted by Hermman [-hh]


Have a nice day!

Further improvements for a smooth resizing are achieved as follows.

    Change size of an object with ONE setting. Here for example:
    set rect of img "TOM" to 0,0,DIMZ,DIMZ
    Instead of resizing the stack set the windowshape of this stack 
    (make tom's background transparent for this to work)
    Lock messages before the two repeats 

This all together works on my oldest machine (PPC/Tiger) very good. 
And it is pretty fast. I recently used this technique elsewhere and 
apply it now for your Halloween-like TOM.

For the polygon graphic object it may be best to make first a snapshot 
of the stack window, edit the image to make it's background transparent 
(or do it both by script) and then apply the technique from above.

For this graphic object the SVG stretch goal will probably allow 
to avoid the snapshot.
