Existing Trees transparent in 3d

Recommended Posts

Hi All

Is there any way to make Existing Tree tool's 3d generic symbols transparent?

Ive tried setting the opacity in the classes tab which doesnt seem to work.

Do you have Renderworks? If so, you can edit the symbols in the default library (Libraries/Defaults/Existing Tree/ET Symbols.vwx and apply a texture with transparency enabled. (Make a copy of the file first just in case of disaster!)

The opacity setting only works on 2D things.

Hope that helps.
