I was wondering how I could do this: i have one texture in the first with an alpha channel i have another texture (no alpha channel) that I want to multiply against the other textures alpha channel only, thereby having an end texture with no rgb change only alpha. anyone know, or where i might look? Thanks!

i didnt understand the first part fully but check out the combine extension (part of opengl 1.3)

for the second q, u cant u will have to create another RGBA texture + copy the RGB data in from the first texture

If you multiplied the first texture by pure white second texture, the RGB should stay the same as the first, right?

I''m used to D3D, so I don''t know if there is a difference.

For textures, use 32-bit. Each 8 bits is a channel (Blue, Green, Red, Alpha)

If you load a texture off of disk, you can use formats like .tga and .png which include the alpha channel in the file.
