Alpha Compositing

Alpha compositing is the process of combining an image with alpha channel values other than 1, with another image with areas of solid colour (0 transparency). The result is a masked image, which has multiple levels of transparency in different parts. When added as a texturemap to a 3D environment, a single texture adds the impression of being many separate objects.
