|Help re transparency in Mental Ray|
Dear all. Please see the following:
The above shows a sphere rendered in Mental Ray with an Arch and Design glass material applied to the sphere. So far so good. Now look at this:
Here, a second sphere, just larger than the previous one, has been added to give the gridlines you see. The material is a PSD file with two layers: one with the grid (blue lines on white BG), and one with the grid as a mask (white lines on black). I applied the blue grid to the diffuse map slot as a bitmap, and the mask to the opacity map slot, also as a bitmap.
Question: why is the second sphere darker? I want only the grid to show up but the whole thing gets darker unless I turn off this second sphere.
Thanks in advance.
