Why setTransparency would affect all objects?
« on: December 13, 2010, 07:40:18 pm »
Hi, I found a strange problem. That there's an object with texture contains alpha channel and appeares translucent, if I call setTransparency to assign any value to any object in the world, the texture will not be translucent any more.

I can't verify this. I'm doing this all the time in Alien Runner without a problem. Do you have a simple test case for this problem?

I have the same problem    when call setTransparency to "testModel "

"texture1" contains alpha

CODE:

If that test case (thanks for that btw...such things make life a whole lot easier) describes the problem, then there is none. When using alpha in a texture, two things have to be considered:

  • Alpha won't be used until you say so. That means that when loading the texture, you have to use the appropriate constructor, i.e. that one with the boolean parameter (set to true). Otherwise, jPCT will calculate it's own alpha channel based on black areas in the texture.
  • To make the alpha channel have an effect, you have to enable transparency on the object that uses the alpha channeled texture. Otherwise, it will be rendered opaque ignoring alpha.

Hope that helps...

plane1.setTransparency(100);
plane2.setTransparency(100);

The problem has been solved !thank you very much!
