Transparency with mci

Posted by Walker [send private reply] at March 13, 2002, 09:48:23 AM

Hy I am playing an mpeg movie with the mci commands and I have to overlay some text on the video (for subtitling the movie). But since a movie is playing there are not much component that can overlay it, I had to use a richedit text box to write the subtitle above the video(bitmaps would not work). But now I would like to get rid of the box and keep only the text. But for that I need to find (if there is any) the color that is considered by the mci as transparent (the chroma key I think it is called). I hope that some will be able to help. I would really appreciate.
