(solved) Glowing and Transparency on 1 material/object
« on: Mar 14, 15, 05:14:08 AM »

Ok so i want to set up a holographic advert. For this effect i would want to make it glow as bright neon and also have mostly transparency with only the text and maybe some other parts of it not fully transparent.

As the glow and transparency maps are both in the alpha of the diffuse, how can i achieve this?

Try setting the mesh to to "no illumination" - that should give you plenty of glow without using a glow map.
They're also rewriting how glow works in the next update, but I don't know if that will affect the "no illumination" option or not.
