  1. The alpha mode is set to blend on both of them. They're each the exact same PSD file, each alpha channel was made the exact same way, and saved the same way. Why is one uploading differently than the other? The only difference is I'm adjusting the radius of the glow from one to the other (see second image for psd file). Is there a limit on how small the glow field can be? Video: https://screencast-o-matic.com/watch/cqfvhxZpfm
  2. Hello! I was wondering if there Is a way to lower the opacity of an already applied tattoo via script. I am trying to improve a tattoo applier HUD so I could apply the tattoo with it (already achieved), but then also add 2 buttóns scripted to lower or increase the opacity of the texture, or maybe 2 or 3 buttons with fixed opacity levels (100%, 75%, 50%). Many thanks in advance for any suggestions!
  3. Hi! I have some doubts about the textures with transparencies. Mi ontention is to create hair with tufts drawns on a texture, but as they have transparencies, when superimposing some over others, the most common occurs: that they become opaque or become invisible. I have been researching on the web and trying to study the hair that I bought in the market (how they manage to make textures with transparencies overlap without interrupting each ohter), but I can't find those results. Some say that it is due to the viewer, others that it is to use PNG format instead to tga format. It can't be the first because I have many hairs with strands that do not become invisible when overlapping and I don't think it is the format since I use .tga. This is driving me crazy. Whoever has the patience and kindness to explain me, thank you very much.
  4. Just figured i'd post something here since I didn't know how to search this, and in turn could not find a solution. Anyways, some hairs have this thing involving their opacity/alpha with the mesh to make the hair strands blend. And for some clothing / furniture/ tattoo system layers / water ect. the hair will cause anything behind or around it to become transparent. Which makes you see clear right through the clothing, cause tattoo's to be invisible if the hair is around it, cause water to disappear if it's around the head of your avatar. I don't know if it's a issue that could be resolved with a flick of a settings button or not but, if there is a way I would really appreciate the support I like to take picture on second life so I run into this situation often and it can make things a pain lol. Below is a screen shot of the issue in world. Thank you https://gyazo.com/324d97c2a60483cf264c2a7901aa2d35
  5. Hi everyone, I need help fixing the eye lash Alphas on the Catwa head because they keep obscuring the custom eye brows behind them, and occasionally the eye shadow too, it seems I've tried everything but if someone found a work around I'd love to hear what you came up with.
  6. Hello Guys, I don't know if my question is silly, but here we go. Im trying to make some Unrigged Alpha Hair, and I don't have success on the process. I cannot create Alpha Layers, the result is the same that we always had on SL with Alpha Textures. I try the process with several image formats, PNG, TGA and Alpha Blend and Mask, but nothing works. I believe that I miss something and I would like to ask for help. Thank you in advanced.
  7. Hello! I'm a fan of those darned fake shadows creators make for mesh items (that seem kind of unpopular). I've been able to make them before in Blender, without issue, but I've lost my notes and I can't seem to find someone that can tell me what I'm forgetting in the parts of the process I can remember. I've found a few vids on YT that create what I want to create (a wall shadow for photo frames)...but when I follow the steps - I can't reproduce the result. I know how to do AO bakes... but a transparent 'bake' seems to allude me and I have made a piece that I'd like to create a custom shadow for. I have done a search through the forums before posting - in hopes someone asked/answered the same question - my apologies if it hit me in the face without my seeing it. Thanks! Edit: Found the issue and now all is well... I had selected lighting in Blender that does not generate a shadow on other objects *headdesks*
  8. hey, i've been having this issue with multiple eyebrow appliers i've bought and i dunno how to fix this issue. it's like my eyebrow layer is slightly covering my eye shadow layer whenever i apply one. (like in the photo.)
  9. Posing this q to the Photoshop gurus out there...I used to have this Filter/Tool installed, it came as a free package with several tools in it, from a site I no longer remember (it's been ages)..not sure if it's even still a thing. Anyway, it's a tool that takes the colors of the edges of your alpha'd picture and colors in the background to those colors to prevent the "halo'd" effect when uploaded in-world. Thanks in advance! https://gyazo.com/30c33b886821cdaf0c23c974e24bbbd2 https://gyazo.com/8a9043b1dbb29daba3a76828f60487c6
  10. Hey guys! Logged on today and it seems as if I can't get my alphas to hide. I cycled through all of my various bodies and all I get is the grey classic shape... looks like all mesh clothing add correctly, it's just the underlying (shape/skin) that isn't. Any idea as to what's going on?

  12. Observed on Firestorm Viewer. Using my favorite fantasy outfit for the first time since switching on Advaned Lighting model, I noticed a strage behaviour for the skirt part. Apparently skirts now have the effect, invis-prims used to have. Can this be fixed? Note: The alpha-occlussion effect also occurs for alpha-less texture, if the length is limited by the "length" setting of the skirt layer. In the background: A block with transparency "1%" (wood), in front of a red block without transparency.
  13. Is there a fix for this? It's a large mesh that can't be resized so I'm unable to shrink the box space. Alpha masking is a good alternative, can still see environmental lighting through it with added sheen benefit, but lose gradation of transparency turning the wings opaque.
  14. Yesterday I was experimenting with some new head and body meshes.This morning I realized that I have some large clear gaps by my left eye and and on the bridge of my nose. I though it was an alpha problem. I removed and reattached any alphas that were showing but the problem didn't go away. I went my older saved outfits with my previous head / body configurations and the problem is there too. I can;t figure it out. Please help! I don't want to walk around with holes in my head!
  15. Hey guys, trying here since I'm having trouble finding help in-world. I have the Catwa Kimberly head and Maitreya body. Two days ago I ran into this issue and have been unable to fix it myself. On my head, the scalp alpha is on (meaning you can see my brain floating around inside my head), even without the Catwa HUD being used. I've done texture refreshes, deformed, avatar reset, rebaked and even reset all my graphics preferences. The few people I've asked have said that they don't see the weird alpha headband look I've got going on but I hate this and it's really bothering me.

    Bake on mesh

    I am using the project bake on mesh viewer and i tried to use my AK head with omega applier for bake on mesh skins and this happens to my eyes anyone can help?
  17. So lately I have been experiencing some weird issues regarding mesh bodies being worn by other people. It's typically the female mesh bodies. The issue looks like this... https://gyazo.com/175ac3a3aaddd86b2495ff47418b0171 https://gyazo.com/6a536793dcfbeb1cad60dd13fc14b8dd In the first image link, it shows random sections of the body alpha'd out, anyone wearing that same mesh body will also have the same effects. The second image shows where the part of the body really is, instead of being on the avatar. How do I fix this?
  18. Llevo un tiempo buscando trajes en marketplace que traigan su alpha, es decir, su versión para poner invisible algunas partes de mi cuerpo y me quede perfecta la prenda. El problema es que no todas las prendas traen una versión así y en muchos casos la prenda o el vestido que compro, asi sea costoso, me queda con algunas partes de piel que sobresalen y no se como corregir este problema.
  19. The last stop, a Modern Supernatural sim, set in Hollow Creek New Mexico is seeking a lycan Alpha for the slowly growing pack. The pack will be able to claim its own territory and business. It will also have its own caves for shifting and meeting together... The Alpha/race lead will be able to name their pack, control it, run the full moon events as well as be a lead with in the sim.. If you are interested Please Contact me inworld. Must be able to be active in rp and contribute to storylines!
  20. hello everyone, I am making a flush tail , I use alpha textures on my tail mesh, but it act like this,is there anything I am doing wrong ?
  21. Hello all. I had a concern about creating mesh hair... I've actually been making hair for a long time in SL (since 2007), but the hair I've made before was either with sculpties or mesh but in anime/toon style with no alpha (Think of Sims 4 hair). So I've never before really had to deal much with alpha-textured hair... but now that I'm trying to get into making mesh hair with realistic alpha that can work for the realistic mesh faces to give the soft/wispy hair look... I'm having issues and would like some advice from anyone who makes hair or otherwise deals with alpha bugs on mesh. I have attached two photos at the bottom, one where the problem is clearly visible, and the other where the problem does not exist... and the problem has to do with the lighting in-world. There is a glitch that if you use the advanced lighting model and stand near certain kinds of lighting like spot lighting, the alpha ends of the hair will mismatch the rest of the hair by being more dimly-lit than the non-alpha or alpha-masked parts of the hair… The difference becomes more and more pronouonced as the "Ambiance" of the lighting goes up (this photo shows it under a spotlight with Ambiance of 1.0). The only fix I could find was to either not stand near spot lights… disable local lights/advanced lighting model temporarily… or make a copy of the hair and using “edit linked objects” or “select texture”, select the alpha part of the hair, and switch the texture’s alpha mode to “Alpha Mask” with a “Mask cutoff” of 125. But, I am trying to figure out if there's a way around this, because it's honestly kind of unreasonable to expect customers to just avoid areas and not complain or feel ripped-off (even though the hair is a group gift, but I want to learn for future hair I will want to make/sell, and update a fix for this one). And while setting the alpha mode to "Alpha Mask" does solve it, it makes the hair look too sharp like it's wet, which I am trying to avoid. >.< And while other hairs I have worn by other creators which has plenty of alpha (such as Dura or really any hair store!) also have some degree of glitching in spotlights, it's not as bad or obvious as with my hair. Unfortunately, I don't have hair creator friends to ask for advice, so I'm posting here. If there's any tips for how you make hair with alpha, that manages to: A: not suffer from the alpha bug where the strands bleed through each other, and... B: not suffer so obviously from the spot lighting in SL. I'd be very grateful. Thanks in advance. --- Inside a regular home in region windlight: Inside the same home with flatter windlight, and facing away from the spot light source:
  22. I have a DSD (Dark Spot Designs) Avatar Head atop the Maitreya body and use the second life avatar neck to transition so I made a custom alpha to reveal just the neck region in the head alpha layer. But my alpha somehow makes the system eyelids appear over my mesh head's eyes... https://i.imgur.com/WvYngC2.jpg (the issue) https://i.imgur.com/PmA4h4L.jpg (cleared up with full layer hidden) https://i.imgur.com/v6PNNj7.jpg (and with my custom alpha on) https://i.imgur.com/uJvg3H5.png (my alpha layer) https://i.imgur.com/VjwSke9.png (my alpha layer overlaying the head uv for clarity) My alpha does not come anywhere near the eye, brow, or eyelash region so I have no idea what I can do to fix it. Also, the eye alpha layer has no effect on the issue. Any suggestions anyone can give would be great. Thanks in advance.
  23. Hi, I have a Adriana Mesh Head by GA.EG & Gaeline and am having issues with parts of my face constantly flickering. Others can't see it and am hoping someone can shed some light as to why this is happening? It doesn't happen to any other mesh items/body part.. just my face! https://gyazo.com/1fa92990c37fff3e884c60aa12d89a73
  24. Hi, I'm a newbie therefore this question could be silly but: when I wear a shirt or a pant bought in the market, they say compatible with my signature Gianni body, then the result is to have few holes in the clothes that show the skin below. I know I should work with the body hud and alpha , but it seems tricky to do this every time I switch clothes. Is there a way to sync alpha and clothes ? Thanks
  25. Help! I didn't have this problem before and I have no idea why it is happening now. Perhaps one of you can help?? I have an item I am making and I have a plane that will have an image of a leaf in the center and transparent around it. I want the leaf only to cast a shadow onto the object behind it. However, every time I try (and I believe I have everything set correctly regarding alpha and shadows), I end up with a shadow from the entire plane, not just the leaf. It seems to be a problem on the object behind, because the plane renders correctly. The only way I can make it go away is to make the plane cast nothing. I want the leaf shadow, so this doesn't work for me. Please help?? I'm at a loss. I have googled and googled and set everything the same as I read, to no avail.
