Ok, so I'm making a game in XNA similar to Uplink (computer hacking) and I have a lot of ingame panels that display information, such as mission details, emails, passwords, and so on. To add to the overall feel of the game, I would like to add a dragging effect like the one they had in the Phun physics playground. It is shown in the very beginning of this video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=frnglKFPp2I&feature=player_detailpage#t=14s (it is shown in the first few seconds when the guy drags the window around!)
This effect seems to me like it would be complicated, but I'm kind of a noob when it comes to XNA (I know absolutely NOTHING about shaders!!!) If it's too complicated just tell me and I'll ditch the idea because I really don't need it, although it would be nice because the interface is everything in my game.
