i did 2 feathers and use this as a mask
now i followed the wiki page for stencil
i added a green plane and then pic on it
but i get that the plane is supposed to be transparent but it take the same color than thw orld sky which in my case is Blue
is this normal behavior ?
or is there a way to have the plane really transparent ?
Well, did you do all the steps required to make the texture alpha enabled?
Does the texture have an alpha?
Did you enable the alpha?
Is z-transparency on?
It looks like you have the specularity of the pane turned on, turn that off.
no this is a JPG pic
i made it with blender
but i got the same problem whith the leave example in wiki which is a PNG file!
and still have the Sky color on the plane
so how do you get rid of this sky color and have it transp
may be it’s not possible !
i’ll test some more
hey man, like Atom said, more then likely you have the specular value too high, turn that down…also make sure you have Use Alpha, and Calculate Alpha turned on in the texture section of the material buttons especially if you made this texture using blender…and don’t forget the aplha channel in the map to section of the materials buttons…should work fine then
hope this helps
Check this thread!
Although it’s in bulgarian you can examine the images and files posted
did soe more testing
and i don’t read Bulgare but i did download the files example at the site
and check it out
now i can see 4 planes and the render doe show the leaves nicely
but i cannot find in the file any texture for leaves
where are they ?
i tried to redo the setup but i get the tranpsrent plane but only the contour of the leaves
what did i do wrong with this setup
i you could i would suggest that you translate this small tut and include it as a pdf file or even have it at as a wiki page it seems to be a very good example for this alpha tranps application
I can open them without a problem.
In all files the images are packed inside the blend file.
Just open them and examine the settings. Even in the figures the important buttons are marked.
(I am too lazy to write tutorials, please don’t ask me that )
ok you nmean that you cannot open them!
that’s is strange
but is there a way to see these
i mean i cannot even see the image texture in F6?
where would they be and how to show theses
it’s a very easy tut to do may 2 pages that’s all
it’s not difficult!
i can do it if you cannot
but the only problem is that for the time being i don’t have PDF writer
i have to buy it - and i’m not planning to do that before next fall
can you make a new file an dupload it somehwere else if you cannot open theses
files - i need to make this work properly
for a project i have and get some new knowledge too
it’s fun to learn new things
Man, read my message carefully!
You can make PDF files with OpenOffice (esp.Writter) - its a free open source package which resembles Microsoft Office
i got open office but never used a lot
i did not know that you could make PDF file with this
i’m going to check that out this night
do you know any tut for theses PDf open office?
When you say unpack what do you mean
and why we cannot see the texture in F5 texture panel
but when i do the render and i can see the leaves
but not the image or even the texture in F5
never seen something like before sorry
Thanks for the tip on open office
it’s a great news - now i can began building PDF with this! LOL
I haven’t use the word unpack anywhere
In the UV/Image editor there is a button that lets you choose an image from a list. Try it!
In OpenOffice - write something, add some images, press File->Save as PDF
i did a test on the office org and exported as PDF
from a word file with pictures
but the pictures did not saved into the PDF file
do you know a way to save with the pictures
would be nice that’s certain
