Hi
Here is one way to do it ...
col1 <- "red"
col2 <- "blue"
EU <- data.frame(EuStockMarkets)
with(EU, plot(DAX, CAC, col=col2, type="h", ylim=c(0,6000)))
par(new=TRUE)
with(EU, plot(DAX, FTSE, col=col1, type="h", ylim=c(0,6000)))
## Convert 'graphics' to 'grid'
library(gridGraphics)
grid.echo()
## grid.ls(print=grobPathListing, viewports=TRUE)
## Rasterize spikes
library(rasterize)
downViewport("graphics-window-1-1")
grid.rasterize("graphics-plot-1-spike-1")
upViewport(0)
downViewport("graphics-window-2-1")
grid.rasterize("graphics-plot-2-spike-1")
upViewport(0)
## Apply alpha adjustment to rasterized spikes
spike1 <- as.matrix(grid.get("graphics-plot-1-spike-1")$raster)
alphaSpike1 <- adjustcolor(spike1, alpha=.3)
dim(alphaSpike1) <- dim(spike1)
grid.edit("graphics-plot-1-spike-1", raster=as.raster(alphaSpike1))
spike2 <- as.matrix(grid.get("graphics-plot-2-spike-1")$raster)
alphaSpike2 <- adjustcolor(spike2, alpha=.3)
dim(alphaSpike2) <- dim(spike2)
grid.edit("graphics-plot-2-spike-1", raster=as.raster(alphaSpike2))
... though that may not be the best way and may just reflect what I have
been thinking about recently ...
