Hi, I have a scene composed of opaque and translucent objects. I need to recognize what parts of translucent objects are visible from camera's pov, discarding the rest. I tried to do so: 1) empty color and depth buffer 2) render just the depths of opaque geometries 3) keep the just filled depth buffer and render the colors of translucent geometries I thought that doing this would fill my color buffer with just the "visible" (= GL_LESSer) fragments of translucent objects. but it does not, the depth test doesn't seem to work and I obtain a render of all translucent objects. I do post my snippet... can you help me out please? :)
//1
		glClear(GL_COLOR_BUFFER_BIT | GL_DEPTH_BUFFER_BIT);

//2
		glColorMask(GL_FALSE, GL_FALSE, GL_FALSE, GL_FALSE);
		glCullFace(GL_BACK);
		glShadeModel(GL_FLAT);
		glDisable(GL_LIGHTING);
		glDrawBuffer(GL_NONE);		// I'm using FBOs!

		RenderFunc(GVREND_OPAQUE);

//3
		glColorMask(GL_TRUE, GL_TRUE, GL_TRUE, GL_TRUE);						
		glShadeModel(GL_SMOOTH);
		glEnable(GL_LIGHTING);		
		glDrawBuffer(GL_COLOR_ATTACHMENT0);
			
		RenderFunc(GVREND_TRANSP);
