View Full Version : Alpha Things in DF...

Thing 1: How do I create a transparent background behind my graphic elements when rendering out to an .rtv that will be used as an overlay in VT? I am getting by right now by loading a completely transparent .tga behind the entire flow. Seems like there should be an easier way but so far it eludes me.

Thing 2: Some heavily blurred white text flys onto the screen and becomes crystal clear over time. This is rendered to an .rtv, overlay is turned on in VT, and some video is placed under the flying text. In VT when the white blurred text flys in it has a dark gray blurring rather then a white foggy blurring. I believe the blurred text is mixing with the black/transparent background in DF. Since I am new to DF I have not been able to figure out how to place a white matte behind the text which would only show in mixing with the blurred portions of the text.

Hope that made sense. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
