View Full Version : alpha values in smooth shading
04-02-2001, 01:46 AM
Are alpha values interpolated between alpha values of a polygon vertices as well as RGB values, across a polygon in smooth shading? It is not clear from the red book.
If you would have spent the few minutes it takes to post a question here on trying it yourself instead, you would have got an answer much faster. But yes, it is interpolated in the same way.

Bob, you sound angry ! http://www.opengl.org/discussion_boards/ubb/smile.gif
Actually, I have another comment: let's say that the alpha value is not interpolated and I do that:
If the alpha is not interpolated, which alpha value is used for my line ???
P.S.: do not take offense, yossi !!! I am just being silly...

I did try it myself before posting this question. Just wanted a confirmation from the Gurus.
Anyway, thanks for your answer.

Bob: You could have saved some work too if you just had written "yes"... ;-)
Ok, I was not angry, I was not mean (or at least not meant to), I was in a hurry, thats all. So I apologise for any harm done http://www.opengl.org/discussion_boards/ubb/tongue.gif
MS: 1-0 to you I suppose...
