Sprite Opacity

Recommended Posts

If I have a sprite object from the sprite class, can it's opacity be changed, or would it have to be a textured 3D quad for that? I know you can also just use an algorithm to blend the sprite with it's background, but that's kind of a hassle.

I assume when you say sprite class you are referring to ID3DXSprite.

When you specify a colour when you draw a quad your first value 0xXXFFFFFF (XX) is your alpha component.

If that doesn't work enable pass "D3DXSPRITE_ALPHABLEND" as a flag when you use sprite->begin(flag) then try the stuff above again.

RECT srcrect;
srcrect.top=0;
srcrect.left=0;
srcrect.right=800;
srcrect.bottom=50;
hudsprite->Draw(hud,&srcrect,NULL,NULL,NULL,&D3DXVECTOR2(0,548.0),D3DCOLOR_ARGB(200,255,255,255));



This is what I do. The last argument, D3DCOLOR_ARGB(200,255,255,255) means the alpha channel is 200, which means it is partially transparant. The other channels are pumped out at their total amount (255)

Hope that helps!
