This thread is for questions and discussions related to John McDonald’s Alpha Blending: To Pre or Not To Pre blog post.
The WebGL Test at the end of the article fails to appear on multiple browsers, presumably because the source image request returns a 404 not found:

This information was gathered using Inspect element on Chrome v60 (latest stable) on Windows 10 64-bit
It would be great if this simple error could be fixed as these articles are a great resource to help colleagues and students learn these concepts, and are a representation of Nvidia as a leader in the industry.
