I'm trying to figure out how to take one image and use the black (or level or darkness) to create the alpha channel for another image. I'm not sure what the best way to do this is - I thought something like this might do it:
[source lang="cpp"]Device->SetTextureStageState(0, D3DTSS_ALPHAARG1, D3DTA_DIFFUSE);Device->SetTextureStageState(0, D3DTSS_ALPHAOP,D3DTOP_SELECTARG1);Device->SetRenderState(D3DRS_SRCBLEND, D3DBLEND_SRCALPHA);Device->SetRenderState(D3DRS_DESTBLEND, D3DBLEND_INVSRCALPHA);//first create the image that will later also be used as the alpha channel in the other image;Device->SetRenderTarget(0,g_RenderSurface);Device->BeginScene();Device->Clear(0,NULL,D3DCLEAR_TARGET,0x00000000,1.0f,0);g_sprite->Begin(D3DXSPRITE_ALPHABLEND);DRAWC(g_sun_background.texture,NULL,&g_sun_background.pos1,color_intesity);DRAWC(g_f_m_background.texture,NULL,&g_f_m_background.pos1,0xFF000000); //black silhoette to be used as alpha transparency;DRAWC(g_f_m_background.texture,NULL,&g_f_m_background.pos2,0xFF000000); // ";g_sprite->End();Device->EndScene();//try to show the second image using the first image as an alpha channel;Device->SetRenderTarget(0,g_BackBuffer);Device->BeginScene();Device->Clear(0,NULL,D3DCLEAR_TARGET,0x00000000,1.0f,0);Device->SetTexture( 0, g_RenderTexture); //(uses the g_RenderSurface);Device->SetTexture( 1, g_sunny_texture);Device->DrawPrimitive( D3DPT_TRIANGLESTRIP, 0, 2 ); //render final 2d image;Device->EndScene();Device->Present(NULL,NULL,NULL,NULL);[/source]
I'm not sure if this is the best way to try to do this or if maybe I should learn to use a pixel shader or something? Any advice is welcome! (^__^)
