Hi, i need to draw my own mousepointer for a 3D application, im writing. I tried drawing it with triangles, but it doesnt really look very well. Anyone got any ideas, how to draw an good-looking mouse pointer? Or any ideas what it should look like? Thanks Alex

Want the top of good-looking? An ortho-projected quad, with a texture and a signed distance field (May I suggest Jonathan "lonesock" Dummer's SDF generation tool?)

Of what, the pointer or igned distance fields? I have a pic comparing signed distance fields with alpha testing, smoothstep() and normal alpha blending, if you'd like it.

Counter clockwise, from top left: Alpha tested; alpha blended; difference higlight; smoothstep()-ed. Credits for the texture go to Jonathan "lonesock" Dummer.

Edit: Fixed image link.
