• Hi everybody
I work in architectural visualisation using enscape. Unfortunately I'm unable to have a proper gradient with transluscent material.
I've tried several tips, *.psd file, *.AI file, each time a png, but the rendering is some kind of noisy, whatever resolution I use (till Ultra).

I've also tried to make multiple material from 95% to 0% opacity, but the rendering is still unsatisfying.

Maybe the resolution of the gradient png is a problem, I mean the dpi.

Here's a pic of what I get.

If you have a solution... Thanks for reading

• I'm assuming you've got the png as part of the glass material, instead try this:

Have a normal glass material without any maps and then have a separate single thickness object/group/face with the fritting png applied and either bury it in the thickness of the glass or behind it if there's no thickness to the glass.

Just tried and got this:

The trick was setting the fretting material to 94% opacity, 95% and above got me the 'gritty' look you have.

I've attached a zip with the png I knocked up and the SketchUp model.
