Translucent material

Hi all. I’m trying to create a translucent material, to imitate a silk pattern over a glass window, something similar to the image below. So far, any transparent material does not give the right result (it creates reflections, and it becomes black if I decrease the transparency channel) and the SSS materials are not translucent enough.

Any idea on how to create such a material?

en baissant le taux de transparence du matériel Verre et en fonçant la couleur de base.

dont decrease the transparency, more like reflectivity

Hi @cnunez,

Is the Base Color of glass white?

And in D5, if the glass is not given reflection, it will be a black object.

Semi-transparent materials are not currently supported, you can try another way to achieve a similar effect: use Cloth Material Template (without any Opacity Map), but give Opacity.

Thanks for your answer I’ll try that. Any idea if and when semi-transparent materials will be supported?
