Combine blend mode with alpha


Recommended Posts

Hello all,

I'm trying to combine a material in blend mode with an alpha channel. But it doesn't seem to be possible.(alpha overrides the alpha from bitmap)


Perhaps using the shader builder could lead to a solution. But I don't really understand shaders and I can not find info about it.

I do think there is something in this playground. But it doesn't work anymore because the shaderbuilder.js can not be found.



Is there anyone who can help me in the right direction?

Thanks for your answers.

Deltakosh, I'm aware of the different modes. But maybe I just don't understand them. Because when I apply some of them I don't see any difference with not using a blend mode. But none of them help me combine the alpha from the image and applying the blend mode.

Gijs, I was nearly embarrased to see that you found a similar question from me from a while back. Unfortunately this seems to be a different issue. Because the alpha blendmode will disable/ override the opacity texture too.

And using the opacityTexture gives many unpredictable results in z-ordering.

I need both to be able to create a colored label with a print with alpha on it.The alpha defines the shape of the label.

Since white being 'printed' on a colored surface will show the colored surface I also need an alpha blend mode.

So I'll keep looking..

I'm affraid it will be shaders.
