Quick question, how do you make parts of a texture transparent, but others not?

Just a question, its for a skin of the Sub-Zero and Raiden ragdolls, respectively.

How do i make one part transparent, but another not? Like, one solid, normal, the other invisible.

Add an alpha channel and export as compressed texture (with alpha).

How do i export as a compressed texture? is it a feature in the VTF?

Do you have the VTF plugin for Photoshop?

If so, just hit “save as” then pick VTF. The VTF options menu should pop up. Hit template then select compressed with alpha.

No i use gimp.

I think it works somewhat the same in Gimp. But don’t quote me on that.

Hmm, do you have photoshop? Maybe you could help me.
