    Unhappy blending & alpha blending in D3D10


    I am trying to learn D3D10, but I'm having some problems.
    1. Can you please explain to me what is blending and what is alpha-blending?

    2. I have a background image and some sprites. The sprites are loaded from a file, 32bit BMP, and have transparent areas (which is, alpha). the code I wrote, and didn't work, was:

    ID3D10BlendState* pBlendState10 = NULL;
    D3D10_BLEND_DESC StateDesc;
    ZeroMemory(&StateDesc, sizeof(D3D10_BLEND_DESC));
    StateDesc.AlphaToCoverageEnable = FALSE;
    StateDesc.BlendEnable[0] = TRUE;
    StateDesc.SrcBlend = D3D10_BLEND_SRC_ALPHA;
    StateDesc.DestBlend = D3D10_BLEND_INV_SRC_ALPHA;
    StateDesc.BlendOp = D3D10_BLEND_OP_ADD;
    StateDesc.SrcBlendAlpha = D3D10_BLEND_ZERO;
    StateDesc.DestBlendAlpha = D3D10_BLEND_ZERO;
    StateDesc.BlendOpAlpha = D3D10_BLEND_OP_ADD;
    StateDesc.RenderTargetWriteMask[0] = D3D10_COLOR_WRITE_ENABLE_ALL;
    pD3DDevice->CreateBlendState(&StateDesc, &pBlendState10);
    FLOAT NewBlendFactor[4] = {0,0,0,0};
    pD3DDevice->OMSetBlendState(pBlendState10, NewBlendFactor, 0xffffffff);
    Can somebody please tell me why it didn't work, and what it means? I couldn't figure out from SDK documentation how the operation works. if I exchange SrcBlend with DestBlend why does the sprite dissapear, while if it is so it does not? for me Src + Dest = Dest + Src. (operation add). I can't also understand what the BLEND_ZERO, BLEND_ONE, ... are and how they can be used. and how the operations can be used.

    please help.

    ok... I believe that my video adapter does not support 2 separate blendings. but why doesn't the reference drive type support it?
