Hello again Joey, i think i found an ideal solution which can be optimized by using image already existing image names
The following code is from my Large Video xml but it is the same system.
In order to save code and graphics power I was creating 1 diffusion image instead of 7.
Not only that the performance has increased again (for me) it also allows you to make it seamless with your design.
The way I see it people are using 2 types of designs,
1) they are fading out to black (or other color) on bottom of the page with the standard gallery overlay image
2) they have an elaborate glass table design (like you) simply copy the part of the glass table design and put it in one image and fade it out to the top and you have a seamless glass table effect with your design.
You might argue that 1x 1280x 200 pixel image is reducing the performance compared to 7 times reloading the same image, well i tried and it is faster with one image, probably due to processing the code.
so here is what I used for my large video page
this is cropped from the middle but you can see the backdrop isn't easy to match but it works great
