Alphablending using DirectX 7



Click here for larger image

Environment: VC6, WIN32 (developed and tested on W2K SP2), DirectX 7

Due to private interest I wrote a small tool (MFC Dialog Application) to visualize alphablending and all combinations of possible attributes. The tool shows rotating earth with athmosphere. Earth and Athmosphere are spheres with textures. Based on the RenderStates D3DRENDERSTATE_SRCBLEND and D3DRENDERSTATE_SRCBLEND earth can be seen through the clouds. Material attributes can be changed also. Just try it out and have fun!

The zip containing the sources in big because of the graphics!

    Posted by nvnoi76 on 12/01/2004 09:37pm

    Hi, I write a program to play Video files using Directshow and MFC ( Visual C++ 6.0 , DirectX 9.0 ) I compile in DEBUG mode, It runs well and correctly. But when I compile in RELEASE mode. It reports error : "Unhandle exception in Playwnd.exe (MFC42.dll)0xC0000005: Access Violation" Is there any problem on MFC42.dll ? Please help me to correct it. Thank you very much.
