02 February 2004, 12:34 AM
hey people thought id post this here since its more likly to get a response, can anyone tell me how to setup a realtime shader render tree that includes reflection and transparancy? ive setup a bassic 1 pass with the tga's alpha controlling the trasnprancy thru blending (src alpha> src alpha minus) but how cna ia dd reflection as well the reflection seems to go off the alpha map too :/ i just want a uniform low level reflection all over (car paint)

cheers guys :)

I wish i knew... i have had troubles doing that too. You might want to ask in the Softimage section of the forums, very friendly bunch over there.

Magic trick. Ref on alpha.

hey thanx but can u either save a preset thats openable in 3.1 or detail ure blending? with rt shaders the rendertree isnt too useful sadly as the important information isnt exposed :)

heres the solution, i applied the reflection ontop of the existing tree rather than before, the alpha channel of the environment controls its intensity on the object :)
