Black sprites?

Would it be possible for me to create an animated sprite that appears black? Or rather a shade of gray? Whenever I try to make anything like this it makes it all transparent because black is rendered transparent regardless of the fact that the texture has an alpha channel. I'm trying to make an explosion-like burst of smoke.

Why not use the particle editor and make what you want in that. it should be easy enough to edit an existing particle.

Use $translucent instead of $additive - and yes, do it with a particle editor.

.pcf files are the way to go :)

then just use a

Code: Select all
info_particle_system


or
Code: Select all
AE_CL_CREATE_PARTICLE_EFFECT


in qc code
