Viewport transparency

hey guys,
seems it is a pretty difficult task to display a transparent object in the viewport while still being able to see texture-less objects with simple shading.

i was following this tutorial and got my texture on the leaf working

but is there a way to display e.g. a helmet with a simple grey material?

cheers chris

Veiwport Rendering mode or openGL? Alpha planes only work in render mode.

hi linkun,

with open gl.
in the youtube video the guy shows how to make it work with glsl but i was wondering if i can have grey shaded models in the scene as well (everything goes black that doesnt have texures)
