Transparent object and problems with their selection

03 February 2016 19:38 #7097
Dear friends
we found out that when an object has Alpha < 0.5 it's not selectable anymore (even if the selectable check is on). In order to reproduce the anomaly just flag Enable Outlining and Outline on Select

It happens only with the Sort and Blend Alpha type.
With the Alpha Clip it behaves as expected

Thank you very much

Hi Luigi,

Well, this works as we intended - for mouse picking purposes all transparent objects count as if they were alpha clip ones. If you still need to select such objects, you can use the following trick. Place another object which will receive mouse clicks and make it non-visible by enabling Do Not Render.

Hope this helps!

thanks for the answer! my problem occurs when I have png images and alpha blend at 0 in order to use the image alpha like this:

In this case I'll use an alpha clip but the trick of a ghost object works like a charm too!

thanks again
