Fade

Changes the colour balance of the screen

Syntax

Fade Up
Fade Up timeTaken
Fade Down
Fade Down timeTaken
Fade To red, green, blue, percent, timeTaken

Description

Fade Up fades the gamma of the screen up to normal level.

Fade Down fades the gamma of the screen to complete black.

time taken specifies how long it should take to do this and is measured in milliseconds (1/1000th of a second). If no parameter is passed then it defaults to 1 second (1000 milliseconds).

Fade To is a more powerful fade command. It can specify colours and percentages to fade between.

red, green and blue are the colour components to fade to. Each of these can be a value between 0 and 255. They are mixed together to produce one colour.

percent is the percentage (between 0 and 100) of how much to fade the screen to.

This command can be used in a sequence e.g.

Fade To 255,0,0,0,1000
Fade To 0,255,0,0,1000
Fade To 0,0,255,0,1000
Fade To 0,0,0,100,1000

This sequence will fade the screen to red, then across to blue, and finally green. It then fades up from green to normal. Each of these phases takes one second so the entire transition would take 4 seconds.
