Search help

  • Simple searches use one or more words. Separate the words with spaces (cat dog) to search cat,dog or both. Separate the words with plus signs (cat +dog) to search for items that may contain cat but must contain dog.
  • You can further refine your search on the search results page, where you can search by keywords, author, topic. These can be combined with each other. Examples
    • cat dog --matches anything with cat,dog or both
    • cat +dog --searches for cat +dog where dog is a mandatory term
    • cat -dog -- searches for cat excluding any result containing dog
    • [cats] —will restrict your search to results with topic named "cats"
    • [cats] [dogs] —will restrict your search to results with both topics, "cats", and "dogs"

Mesh part translucent


I have a problem with translucent material : I have a gas mask with glasses, and I need to have the gas mask opaque and the glasses translucent. With no translucency ( masked material ), I have the correct gas mask but no translucency ( obviously ) :

With a translucent material, I got the correct glasses but the rest of the gas mask goes wrong :

My opacity mask is pure white for the gas mask with grey circles for the glasses. What can I do to have the material working properly please ?

1 answer: sort voted first

2 options:

Option 1: Use 2 materials on the character. 1 for the glass, one for all the other stuff.

Option 2: Use dithered opacity masking which is available in 4.12. It fakes translucency using a dither pattern which is then softened by temporal anti-aliasing. But option 1 is probably better in this case.
