hello everyone,

 

I would like to ask you guys about having a 3D object on top of a 2D Sprite (e.i. minecraft's inventory page where it shows your skin on the top left). I'm using DirectX 9 on Windows 7. There might be a right name for and it in that case, please let me know.

 

Thanks a lot!

You could set a surface as a render surface, and then draw the 3d image onto it, then you transform the surface and render it in 2d to where you want it to be. Use a different surface for your 3d world etc. I havnt played minecraft - they could just be using prerendered sprites if the animations it does are fairly simple.
