    Stuf and Portrait/health bar overlay

    Is it, in stuf, possible to use the portrait as a health bar the same way as Elvui does?

    Similar to how this portrait is being used.

    Not use it the same way, but you could simply place the health bar above the portrait and if it supports it, have the bar being transparent with an opaque health deficit.

    The only thing you need to do is make the portrait bar with no background and place it over the health bar and set your frame status to high.

    This is what I do with my UI. It works very well

    what ComputerNerd said, except, you can't do that in Stuf. (you can't make the deficit opaque and the background transparent)

    You CAN do that with WeakAuras though, so whenever I used/tried this effect in the past I used a Stuf frame + portrait with a WeakAuras health bar over the top. That alone is easy, but it becomes trickier if you then want text over the health bar because all Stuf frame elements sit in the same strata (and you will have just placed the WeakAuras HP bar in a strata above that) so you need the text to be done with WeakAuras too.

    Ofc, it's possible you can do it with Stuf alone and I'm just being super dumb and missing it...

    You can use Fill on Loss, then the deficit can use the bar custom color. Putting it over the portrait (and potentially reversing direction, depending on how you wanted the portrait to appear to "fill up") and making the background for the health bar transparent will then create the effect. Unless there's a desired aspect that I'm missing.
    That is not dead which can eternal lie.
    And with strange aeons even death may die.

    That sounds exactly like it.
    I might have to re-enable stUF and have a bit of a play, see if I can come up with the desired effect.

    Thanks for the heads up. :-)

    Thanks a lot for the input. I haven't been able to try it out yet, but hopefully I'll have time tonight

    No problem! I use stUF and I've used the portrait-as-health look before, so I'm glad to help.
