Control transparency of 3D polygons?

Recommended Posts

Am I right in saying we can't control the transparency of 3D polygons? And therefore can't make objects imported from Sketchup transparent?

You can apply a texture to a 3D polygon i.e. Frosted Glass and alter the transparency settings through the Resource Browser.

The only way is to create a series of Textures that are transparency textures only that uses object color for renderworks if you need object level control.

The other method is by design layer but then you have to move them to the Greyed design layer as Greyed Classes does not work.
