Hello all, I have a question about the transparency in the render options.
If I draw a mesh in 3D and open the file in keyshot the openings are indeed transparent.
However when I use a mesh from Keyshot the openings are not transparent, how can I fix this?
See the images below:
I'm not the one to answer your question, but I will ask a question. What area are you talking about not being transparent? I can't see any difference between the two screenshots, other than the background appearing to have mesh to it. As for your model, and the close up screenshot, I'm not catching the error you are seeing.
Maybe that's why nobody has offered suggestions?
The mesh you see is to show the user this is transparent. If you insert this in photoshop or equal, you can see things under/through that mesh.
The white you see is closed. If you place a layer with a color under this you don't see the color.
You know, this is one of those things. Software sometimes seems like magic, and people think it should be able to do anything. But people have to write instructions to make it do the stuff we dream up.
I think this is probably one of those things that we leave to Photoshop (which really is magic). If you're into free software, Irfan and GIMP can also handle it from a post-processing point of view.
We have a slogan here at EMCÉ:
I cannot do any magic, for miracles you have to wait a bit longer.
But now to the point, as an engineer I don't want to use photoshop. That is something for our marketing department. But to reduce the amount of work for marketing department I was only asking if it was possible. There is a mesh in Keyshot that let you show items, or even a change in the background color, trough the part (or surface) but doesn't show it in the render image, that is just weird.
I will leave it as it is, it is not a Siemens issue. So I will not make an IR about it.
Why dont you just render with the background you want so reflections, shadows and all are looking good ?? If you render with transparent backgrounds shadows and reflections will look bad in a different background.
True, that is possible. However it is for our website and the background is perhaps different than what I can make in the render (gradient for example).
The Marketing department will take care of the transparency in Photoshop, so I am done with the renders.
