How to achieve portrait "smooth edge" effect?

Postby gabymilito on Fri Dec 07, 2018 7:06 am

I've been editing portraits for some time now for NBA2K10 (I think is quite similar to 2K11 and 2K14) using Photoshop and IFF-CDF Studio) and I still don't know how to get that "smooth edge" effect the original portraits of the game have. Here's an example of what I'm talking about:

Original portrait of Ilyasova (the game doesn't show portraits like this):

Same original protrait with the transparency button (the game shows all portraits like this):

Does anybody know how to do it properly? I've been editing the pics with Photoshop and saving them as DDS files, 256x256 and creating the mipmaps, but no "smooth edge" :roll: Am I missing something in the process?

Please don't post the same topic in multiple sections. It just gets confusing for anyone trying to respond with more than one conversation going on.
