Cool viz.Screen Images overlap and Interface Button

Hi,

I created an interface that stick to the screen by using TexQuad and viz.Screen. The interface resemble a video player that can play video. Since the interface would be overlapping with the video, what I did was, I initialized the interface first then the video, and these enabled the video to be displayed in front the interface. The problem is, when I applied the alpha to the interface, why did the video's opacity was affected as well? here is the sample code..

Code:
#the player interface
intface = viz.add('videoPlayer.jpg')
vidPlayer = viz.addTexQuad(parent=viz.SCREEN,pos=(0.5,0.5,0.1))
vidPlayer.alpha(0.75)  
vidPlayer.setScale([12,6,0])
vidPlayer.texture(intface)

#the video
vid = viz.addVideo('vizard.mpg',loop=1,play=1)
movie = viz.addTexQuad(parent=viz.SCREEN,pos=(0.5,0.52,0))
movie.setScale([4,4,0])
movie.texture(vid)
Attached together is the interface jpg file for your ease..

Another matter is, I was wondering, how do I create the button for this Player? Is it by creating another image,a Close button for instant, translate it to the desired location, and apply the 'vizact.onpick' function. Or do you have any better solution?

Thanks
