    Hey! Is it possible in VideoPostData::AllocateBuffer() to allocate an RGBA buffer? (as opposed to a seperate
    RGB and Alpha buffer).

    Hi Niklas,

    Do you want to create a custom RGBA buffer with Render::AllocateBufferFX() in VideoPostData::AllocateBuffers()?

    Yes exactly Yannick. Is it possible? VPBUFFER_POSTEFFECT gives me only an RGB buffer and 
    VPBUFFER_POSTEFFECT_MUL gives me only a Grayscale (Alpha) buffer.

    If it is not, maybe there is some way to "associate" the two buffers so file formats that support it
    will receive it as a single RGBA layer instead?

    I'll ask the developers if that's possible.

    Hi Niklas,

    I'm afraid it's not possible to associate VPBUFFER_POSTEFFECT and VPBUFFER_POSTEFFECT_MUL buffers.
