Glass material rendering grey/darker

Messaggio da tom.sb »

Hi everyone,

I'm trying to make photorealistic glass objects in order to apply some visuals/patterns at the end.


I achieved something I like on a black background, but If I put my render on a white screen the render looks really bad.

I had lots of trouble to get a nice lightning but now I'm stuck with this.

How can I make the glass looks really transparent ?


You can download the project file here : https://drive.google.com/file/d/1jocMXV ... 7vDQMI2WeE

Thanks in advance for you help ❤️

I downloaded your file and all seems to be fine. I moved the color slider of the Cinena4D Trasparent channel to 100% instead of 94%. This action give to you a more trasparente alpha channel.

Remember that if you want a more transparent object you need to works on alpha channel to make it more white, as you can see the alpha channel is displayed a little bit grey to avoid holes into the channel :)
