Transparent Textures in POVRAY3.0

Transparent Textures in POVRAY3.0

Post by Philipp Hirt » Fri, 27 Sep 1996 04:00:00



Hello.

I've got a problem using transparent textures. If I have several
transparent textures behind each other, the transparent parts get black.
I've tried GIF Files as textures with the filter option and I tried TGA
Files with alpha channel, but the result is always the same.

Does anybody know a solution?

Try increasing the max_trace_level (I assume you use POV-Ray).
