View Full Version : Maya - Alpha not rendering?

08 August 2004, 04:48 PM

I'm using Maya 6 and have a texture with an alpha channel in it. If i map the texture onto a surface the alpha channel appears to be working (in the main view) however if i render out the view, the alpha channel appears black? i've looked in the help file and there appears to be no mention of this problem.

Anyone? :)

are you sure you have the alpha channel? cause i did a quick test here with a file, and it works fine, i rendered with mentalray and the Maya render,if its not working try to use a reverse node with you texture file:shrug:

The problem appears to have fixed it's self now (weird!)
