Control advanced transparency effects.
- [Instructor] Let's apply transparency and refraction…to this vase or vase and the water within it.…For transparent or refractive materials…using the Arnold Standard Surface…we adjust the Transmission properties.…So that objects can participate in transmission rays…we must disable the Opaque attribute…on the shape nodes of any transparent objects.…All objects are considered opaque in Arnold…unless we specifically disable opacity.…
Select the vase and open its attributes with ctrl + a.…In its mesh shape node open up the Arnold section…and disable the Opaque attribute.…And the same goes for the water object.…To get to that use the Outliner…and scroll to the bottom and select vaseWater…and with that vaseWater object selected…back in the Attribute Editor…once again disable the Opaque attribute.…
Now we'll actually be able to see the effects…of Transmission attributes in the Arnold Standard Surface.…Let's check in on our Render Settings.…I'll close the Outliner,…open up the Arnold RenderView,…choose Arnold, Render,…
