Description

The Blender freestyle rendering engine does not seem to be able to take into account the 'edges' created by a transparent texture.

Set up a plane and texture it with a picture so that the texture has an arbitrary outline surrounded by fully transparent areas (as described in the linked tutorial): freestyle will render the shape of the plane, not that of the shape of the texture.

Is this a known limitation?
Will freestyle one day take transparent texture into account?
