    Hey guys,
    I've noticed this problem since beta 13 and was wondering if it was my machine or just a beta bug. Whenever a sprite is set to a material that uses Sprite Diffuse, the transparent parts of the sprite will appear black.

    I'm running Unity 5 beta 14 on OS X 10.10.1, the earlier beta's never had this problem.
    Any ideas on what the problem could be? Or any tweaks I can make to the shader to make the transparency work?

    Thanks!

    I am having this issue in Beta 14 on OS X 10.10.1; just upgraded from Beta 9 where the issue was not present.

    [edited because I'm an idiot and can't read version numbers :)]

    Double-edit - just downloaded b16 and the issue persists.

    Yeah, it's a little concerning when something as simple as an issue regarding sprite transparency has made it through the last 3 versions of the Unity 5 beta.

    No comment can be made on versions older than the current (as of writing, 21). If you still get this behaviour in 21, with "fade" set for transparency, then file a bug otherwise it's a waste of time talking about it since it could have got fixed in 18, 19, or 20.
