    Render Transparent Material

    I am trying to create a fabric that will render as translucent, but am having issues. See my fabric settings attached.

    The material looks transparent with my view set to realistic, it looks transparent in the material dialog box, but when I render it is hopelessly solid. What am I doing wrong?

    I don't typically get frustrated with Revit, but when I do it's when I have to spend more than 30 minutes working in the materials editor. Please save me from continued torture. :banghead:

    Thanks,

    Sarah

    What's the scene look like? It will probably only be transparent if there is some light behind it. Try kicking it up to 100% just to see what happens.

      I think it's because your cut-outs and bumps are conflicting - they look the same, so the cut-outs happen where the bump happens, and vice versa. You'll note most of the OOTB texture library's cut-outs come in both a positive and negative version, and if it's a custom texture .jpg you'd do well to try creating a negative version and trying that.

      If all else fails, start over with an OOTB material that you know works, like the site wire fence, and then edit that to suit.

        I'm still having issues but I think it does have to do with the cutout images. I'll keep working on it.

        Thanks everyone.
