Using reference

Hey all. How do I make my material transparent so I can model with a reference image on another layer, and see it? Every time I adjust transparency under materials nothing happens. HELP!!


You need to turn off the Flatten Layers icon in the render palette.

Add to Nocturnal451 you have to choose material that have transparency properties because FastShader1 dont have. Try with basic material 2.0

hi footface,while your model is in draw pointer mode you can set the draw>RGB intensity to 50% with any material to see through model on a single layer with reference pictures also,take care.
