Hi! I think i have a blend problem with my cloud billboards. After rendering the scene i render some cloud billlboards. My problem is that the clouds are much brighter in bright areas like the sky for example. I think a picture says more than 1000 words :) The render states for the clouds: m_pDevice->SetTextureStageState( 0, D3DTSS_COLOROP, D3DTOP_MODULATE ); m_pDevice->SetTextureStageState( 0, D3DTSS_COLORARG1, D3DTA_TEXTURE ); m_pDevice->SetTextureStageState( 0, D3DTSS_COLORARG2, D3DTA_DIFFUSE ); m_pDevice->SetTextureStageState( 0, D3DTSS_ALPHAOP, D3DTOP_SELECTARG1 ); m_pDevice->SetTextureStageState( 0, D3DTSS_ALPHAARG1, D3DTA_TEXTURE ); m_pDevice->SetRenderState( D3DRS_SRCBLEND, D3DBLEND_ONE ); m_pDevice->SetRenderState( D3DRS_DESTBLEND, D3DBLEND_ONE ); It would be great if someone could help me!!!

These two lines:

m_pDevice->SetRenderState( D3DRS_SRCBLEND, D3DBLEND_ONE );
m_pDevice->SetRenderState( D3DRS_DESTBLEND, D3DBLEND_ONE );


Create an addition result - you're adding the source and destination together. Thus you'll get bright areas (values >= 1.0 if you were using HDRI).

Try _SRCBLEND = _SRCALPHA and _DESTBLEND = _INVSRCALPHA instead. That should give you regular alpha blending based on the transparency in the source geometry/texture.

Thanks for the fast reply!!

I changed the blends like you said to:
m_pDevice->SetRenderState( D3DRS_SRCBLEND, D3DBLEND_SRCALPHA );
m_pDevice->SetRenderState( D3DRS_DESTBLEND, D3DBLEND_INVSRCALPHA );

and now i get this weird result:



What could i made wrong?
