Grass Import Issue IMG
Hello, I'm new to the engine and I'm messing around trying to familiarize myself with the engine. I'm constructing a world and I've come to the point to where I'd like to import some foliage, so I made my grass model in Wings3D..

[Image: grass_issue2.png]

And as you can see there are some odd lines surrounding the image..
This is the source image.

[Image: grass.png]

So those lines didn't originate from the image file, so I figured it was simply the way wings3d rendered it, so I export it in .3ds into Esenthel, and it appears the same way..

[Image: grass_issue3.png]

So my question is, is this a Wings3D issue, an Esenthel issue, or a mistake on my part that caused the Alpha to not work correctly? And how could I fix it? If it is a Wings3D Alpha compatibility issue than what are there any tutorials you could point me to that are for Blender and/or 3ds Max?

Any help is greatly appreciated.
Thanks,
Kaleb

Try change alpha value in material settings. Or open file in some graphic program and color background with black brush a specialy place where you see those lines.

I tried what you said and there was no difference in how it appeared.

I re created the mesh in 3ds max, exported, and now I can't apply my alpha map. It looked great in 3ds max (no lines), and now I can only get the diffuse to apply in the material window. I drag and drop the alpha map onto various places in the window, trying to see if I am just moving it to the wrong spot, but I can't get it to go in at all, even when I try to apply it as the diffuse..

Am I doing this totally wrong?

please reattach the texture file, I can't access it for some reason.
the texture is at fault.
either it has alpha incorrectly, or maybe it's non-power of two, and the border pixels are causing this.
