Now it's easy to get overwhelmed by a new challenge of how are you going to solve…all the problems presented.…Usually, the best way to go about it is to solve one problem at a time and piece…all the solutions together.…One problem we already solved for you, but I'd like to explain it for you a little bit.…Now notice that we can see the underside of this butterfly.…Butterfly is here in this scene and our camera is looking up at it.…I'll type AA to reveal the 3D options.…The default setting for 3D layers is that a light casting onto the top of a layer…shows the pixels in the layer.…
But the underneath or the backside of a layer is black, it's in shadow.…You see that the camera cannot see the top side of that layer that's being…illuminated by our light.…Well there's a parameter called Light Transmission.
