Title: Transparency question
Post by: Blick Fang on May 13, 2016, 02:24:09 pm
Hi All

I am trying to make an in ground swimming pool.  I am having a problem with importing my pool into 2 other programs.  When I render my pool in Anim8or i get my results: a transparent water layer.  But in the other programs, its like a bright white sheet.  I have to admit, I am having an issue with wrapping my brain around the whole lighting and material subject.  But if I was successful in Anim8or, why wouldn't my results carry over to the other programs?  Ultimately I am try to make a nice .fbx low poly in ground pool to use in Muvizu

Thanks for looking

I don't think I've ever had Anim8or-created materials work when I've exported to any other program, regardless of what it is.  When I'm planning on exporting I'll usually build the model in Anim8or, but all materials and animation are done elsewhere.
