[UI beta] Add ability to mask with smooth alpha, and invert the mask

GUI

-

-

The problem is that masks use alpha, sure, but only to the point where the value is 0, or 1 instead of floating point.

Also why aren't we able to invert the masks, so instead of constraining the image to a space, it would remove the masked area from the image.

    +1 for invert. It took an hour of pulling my hair out before I finally landed on this thread.

    Unity 5.3 is out and this feature still hasn't been implemented.

    My current project would benefit greatly from invertible masks. I have a co-op platforming game with lighting done via overlaying darkness images in each room that can be faded in and out by lightswitches. I want to put a mask on my darkness canvas for each of the players to follow them around, providing a small viewport around each player so that both can see each other but currently there is no simple way to do this. If I simply invert the image, then the black area around the players will obscure each other viewports.

    Agree. The mask with smooth alpha is very useful. And with anti-aliasing ofc. Invert the mask isn't need I think.
