In this Add-On, you will add a shadow effect to your studio logo text.

First, create a new costume for the sprite.

Duplicate the main text costume.

To make it easier to edit, make sure that the costume is in vector mode.

Use the duplicate tool to make a copy of the words.

Next, click the flip up/down button.

This mirrors the words.

Change the color to black to make it look like a shadow.

Next, add perspective to the text.

Select the small box at the bottom of the text and drag it upward on the screen to squish the text.

Grab the small box on the right to stretch it out.

Move the text around the paint editor to a spot that looks right to you.

Next, add a light source to make the shadow.

This example draws a yellow circle on the top left of the canvas.

Then, delete the original text from your new costume so you can program this new one to appear.

If you have other text, duplicate the text into this costume and repeat the same steps.

Now, program the shadow costume to appear as part of the studio logo.

Follow the same process as in the previous videos to make a new clone.

Add switch costume and create clone blocks.

Duplicate an if statement, change the value to the number of the new costume, and delete the code inside.

Remember, clicking the show block makes the sprite appear on the stage as you edit your code.

Change to the correct costume and position it on the screen using a go to X, Y block.

Next, program the sprite to appear.

Use a change effect block inside a repeat loop.

Place the loop inside the new if statement.

Select ghost from the dropdown menu and change the value to negative 10.

Drag out a set effect block and put it before the repeat loop.

Change the values to ghost and 100.

Test it out.

When the program starts, the shadowed letter should appear.

Fix the timing of the animation by using a wait block after the set effect block if needed.

Also, adjust the costume in the editor until the perspective is just right.

Now it's your turn.

Use the editor to make a shadow effect on the words.

Program the words to appear using set effect and change effect blocks.
