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"

Prevent material rendering behind itself?

It's hard to describe so I've attached an image. I have a domed roof that's transparent based on WS normals. Circled in red you can see the bottom of this roof being rendered through itself because the top is transparent. Is there a way to make it so that it doesn't render?

Also is it possible to force an object to render a shadow even if transparent?

1 answer: sort voted first

That is fundamental issue of translucency sorting. You can use a workaround,via custom depth

Proper shadows can be achieved with static lights.
