Wipeout

THE WIPEOUT (DXF Reference) entity is a polygonal area that masks underlying objects with the current background color. The WIPEOUT entity is based on the IMAGE entity, but usage does not require any knowledge about the IMAGE entity.

The handles to the support entities ImageDef and ImageDefReactor are always “0”, both are not needed by the WIPEOUT entity.
