Adding shadow to text
Is it possible to add a shadow to text using Crank Storyboard Designer directly? The current implementation I use is to have an image of the text with the shadow included in the image. However, if I want to change the text that means using another image. I would prefer it if I could use the text control with a shadow that could change on the fly.
Storyboard doesn't natively support a drop shadow option within designer however you could achieve this effect by using a second text render extension bound to the same variable. You could then bind variables the "shadow" text properties like alpha, color, x/y offsets then programmatically control the effect.
I've created a simple example and attached it for your reference, hopefully, this helps!
