Glass material not transparent

Recommended Posts

Are we using Ambient Occlusion here, and if so, has that got the vital button 'evaluate transparency' ticked ? 

Also there is a similar control in the Physical Render Settings that should also be ticked, AO or not...

If it's not that, pls upload the scene file so we can check other things.

I've always wondered about this but I only have had ONE case where I actually needed this and that was for the exact case that is described in the manual. I can't see a difference at all between having this enabled and disabled, even with AO.

Yes, that was more of a general workflow thing - for the tiny amount of extra calculation time it costs I think it's worth having that on if there are transparent things in the scene. In this case I predict the problem is 100% the AO thing 🙂
