The Future of this Forum:

The Inkscape Project opened its first official forum on its website this month (August 2019). https://inkscape.org/forums/ In an effort to combine all the different forums into one, this forum will no longer be accepting new members or new messages. However, it will remain open for a little while, for existing members, to have access to their contents, if they need them.

Any potential new members should register on the new forum, and post their message there. There is a special board for questions about using Inkscape for cutting machines (of all kinds). (https://inkscape.org/forums/cutplot/)

If you have any questions or comments (and you're an existing member) you can post them here.

Although I've been planning to put this forum in read-only mode, at the time of this transition, unfortunately, my personal circumstances have changed, and I won't be able to host this forum much longer. I'm not sure about the time frame. It could be as soon as the end of 2019, or as long as a year from now. If anyone is interested in taking it over, please contact me.

A few nights ago I was watching a video by Little Web Hut http://www.youtube.com/user/tutor4u and found a lot of new and interesting information. One of the videos showed how to use Object>Mask>Set and I thought anyone who use Clip Set may be interested. Sorry, I am not sure which video I viewed and will try to find the correct one and add a link to it for you to watch to see how this is done.

Below are screenshots and examples showing the basics of how to add a mask. Remember I am new to trying this so my examples are also my experiments. If I remember I will replace them with better examples when I have time.

The resulting masks are hard to see in the screenshot and may look better if you click on it to view the larger image.
I have just noticed I did not explain the gradient very well. Where the gradient is white there is little change in the image. Where the gradient is black the image will be very transparent. Shades in between will result in a graduation of the fading effect. Experiment and see what you can achieve.
