View Full Version : slight transparency/alpha problem...

I have a transparency map on Saturn's rings, and you can see here that the planet shows through where it's supposed to:

However, in the following image, the ring is solid white in the alpha, and the stars don't show through in the RGB. the stars are single-point polys, so they're rendered as particles.

any ideas on how to solve this? particularly how to get the transparency map to correctly affect the alpha somehow?

Turn off ray traced transparency.
