glAlphaFunc — specify the alpha test function
Specifies the alpha comparison function. Symbolic constants
GL_ALWAYS are accepted. The initial value is
Specifies the reference value that incoming alpha values are compared to. This value is clamped to the range , where 0 represents the lowest possible alpha value and 1 the highest possible value. The initial reference value is 0.
The alpha test discards fragments depending on the outcome of a comparison between an incoming fragment's alpha value and a constant reference value.
glAlphaFunc specifies the reference value and the comparison function. The comparison is performed only if alpha testing is enabled. By default, it is not enabled. (See glEnable and glDisable of
ref specify the conditions under which the pixel is drawn. The incoming alpha value is compared to
ref using the function specified by
func. If the value passes the comparison, the incoming fragment is drawn if it also passes subsequent stencil and depth buffer tests. If the value fails the comparison, no change is made to the frame buffer at that pixel location. The comparison functions are as follows:
Passes if the incoming alpha value is less than the reference value.
Passes if the incoming alpha value is equal to the reference value.
Passes if the incoming alpha value is less than or equal to the reference value.
Passes if the incoming alpha value is greater than the reference value.
Passes if the incoming alpha value is not equal to the reference value.
Passes if the incoming alpha value is greater than or equal to the reference value.
Always passes (initial value).
glAlphaFunc operates on all pixel write operations, including those resulting from the scan conversion of points, lines, polygons, and bitmaps, and from pixel draw and copy operations.
glAlphaFunc does not affect screen clear operations.
GL_INVALID_ENUM is generated if
func is not an accepted value.
