    Hi! This is a bit more of a technical question regarding performance:

    I have a lot of atlased objects in a single texture, but only a few transparent materials. Would there be an impact if I move the transparent materials into the main atlas (thereby having to enable the main atlas to support transparency, which is a lot more pixels) or should I separate the transparent objects to be in their own tiny atlas that supports transparency? I'm just making sure packing it all in a single atlas has a negligible impact even if it's technically a massive transparent texture (though not much transparency in the actual scene).
