Title: > new keyshot user > how to set a color to transparent with .png image
Post by: Ric oO on February 07, 2018, 10:28:56 am
Hello everyone, happy to join the forum !

New keyshot user since yesterday (I am French), I try to make a color transparent, using the alpha (I think, following my readings)

In my example I would like to make the color black (or another) transparent to have a transparency like a mesh. I tried with glass and water but it's not that.
I quickly created a texture of cross straps and saved in .png format.

Can someone help me please. A big thank you in advance.

If the subject already exists, please excuse me because it is difficult to read English.

I believe you need to apply the black and white texture/mask in your opacity channel.

Is  that  what  you want ?
