Creating a partially see-through sprite
« on: November 07, 2015, 04:31:04 pm »
Hi!
I'm trying to create a sprite where certain areas in the sprite are see-through. Is this possible? I can't find any other forum posts about it...
(Sorry if it's really obvious...  Newbie to SFML  :P)
Please help!

You need to utilize the alpha channel in whatever program you are using to create your textures and save your texture with the png format.

You can also load an image, set a mask from a color then load a texture from this image and apply it to your sprite.
But it's definitely easier to do as zsbzsb said

Thanks for the help! I created a mask and that worked out fine.
