Title: How to apply a label as glass/liquid?
Post by: bronson on December 29, 2016, 05:41:34 pm
Hi,

I have an overlay image of raindrop.
How can I apply this image to KS?
Normally I will add a label and apply the image as opacity of the label.
This method works for dust or fingerprint overlay, which doesn't required the label to be transparent.
But for water, I need the label to be transparent and there is no way I can set label as glass or liquid in KS.
Pls help.

Jpeg files do not carry alpha/transparency data. Use the colour/invert colour option on the opacity swatch settings.

Hi
If it's just for raining effect you can use the bump canal with a normal map founded at : https://www.poliigon.com
