New Features[edit]

  • Phong MAT - (And all other MATs) now have expanded blending functionality. There is a new 'Blend Operation' menu to select from Add, Subtract, Reverse Subtract, Minimum, and Maximum operations. In addition there is a separate operation menu just for alpha. Furthermore new options for Constant Color/Constant Alpha are found in the Source Color/Destination Color menus which enable 'Blend Constant Color' parameters when selected.
