View Full Version : Specularity and alpha channel??

I'm working with some objects that are transparent yet opaque at edges (ala incidence angle gradient). I finally remembered to turn off "raytrace transparency" to get the alpha channel right.

My only problem is with the specularity. I'd like these objects to be a bit shiny but that still doesnt seem to appear in the alpha channel. I intend to do some compositing in Photoshop later.

I suppose this issue would probably apply for reflectivity on the object as well as specularity.

Am I missing something or do I need a trick to pull this off?
