Mapping onto transparent objects

Recommended Posts

Does anyone know how to map an image onto an object that has a transparent texture....I'm trying to get black words onto a semi transparent fabric banner....there may be an easy way to do this?

You can assign transparency values via texture edit > mask.

Best results are obtained when the background mask's color is of sufficiently high contrast to the image.

Black Letters on a simple transparent background utilizes a white mask.

But if the fabric grey-scale pattern is involved then a higher contrast green or pink mask may be required.

The clever Transparency Mask Editor helps you to obtain the best dynamic range.
