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"

Transparency problem

I got a transparency issue. If this laser barrier is behind the distorting glass, it looks fine. If it's in front it gets distorted but it shouldn't. I set the laser material to "render before DOF". If I disable that it looks fine in front of glass but bad behind glass. (Also it doesn't get blurred in DoF then). So it's bad either way. Is there a way to get this right both ways?

That is expected, because if you render translucent object before DOF and use distortion, distorted scene color already contains your object. You can use refraction bias to some extent to minimize it, but overall, this is the way it works.

Ok, but how can you make it look correct in all cases?
