That'll go a long way to explaining why the hair on my witch went funny during that last comp.


I'm guessing here cos I'm not up on HLSL at all but can you turn off the alpha blending and fall back to a simple alpha test?

I've not seen anyone get sorting right on alpha blended geometry without shattering objects into individual tris yet - assassins creed, farcry 2 etc all use simple alpha tests for their foliage and it looks fine til you get right up close.
