Transparent Objects

Post  charlierby on Fri Oct 17, 2008 6:10 am

Hi,

I just exported my scene from blender and everything works as expected, except objects with (semi-)transparent textures. These are all rendered out grey. Is there anything I have to do in code to get it working?

Thanks in advance!

Greetings,

Yeah you can do it in code but its easier to get it done with blender...

1. Make sure that you are using TGA -> RGBA
2. For the 1st texture channel make sure that you select the blend mode "Value", assuming that you only want to render them transparent / semi-transparent.

I would also suggest you to watch CLOSELY the video for tutorial04, I explain everything there is to know about semi-transparent texture & SIO2.

Hope it helps,

Cheers,

Hi again,

thanks for your reply.

I did it exactly like you described it in the tutorial, but it's still just grey... any other hints? I also tried it with the texture you use in the tutorial...

Have you turn on the blending mode "Value" that stand for alpha? If yes send me your .blend so I can check what's wrong...
