All project work goes through Katapult Media. Business is open. Let’s chat.

Scott Barnes is a very vocal evangelist at Microsoft. He “blogged about using masks and a VideoBrush in Silverlight”:https://blogs.msdn.com/msmossyblog/archive/2007/09/17/silverlight-masking-demo.aspx and “posted the example here”:https://www.mossyblog.com/SilverlightMaskDemo/.

This example is a HUGE reason why I love the video support in Silverlight. Being able to create a VideoBrush and place that brush in multiple locations (see how Scott used the brush as a reflection) is sweet!

Check out the example…it is simple but nice.
