PVRShaman model not displaying transparency properly


I am trying to save fbx model ad POD and I am seeing this weird issue with textures.
For some reason my model (peacock) tail rear side is invisible. How can I fix this issue?

I attached an image showing peacock from the back that his tail is not showing.

Thank you very much!

Hi Stan,

It does not seem invisible but black (you can test this changing the background colour in PVRShaman). This problem is usually related to normals. For example, they might be flipped and pointing to the opposite direction or there might not be normals at all. Check the mesh with the data viewer in PVRShaman. It might also be caused by the material you have created. For example, if using shaders the output might be 0. Try with different materials. If nothing works, you can send us the model through our ticketing system ( for us to have a look.

Best regards.
