This material can receive shadows, but otherwise is completely transparent.

ShadowMaterial(parameters : Object)

parameters - (optional) an object with one or more properties defining the material's appearance. Any property of the material (including any property inherited from Material and ShaderMaterial) can be passed in here.


See the base Material and ShaderMaterial classes for common properties.

.isShadowMaterial : Boolean

Used to check whether this or derived classes are shadow materials. Default is true.

You should not change this, as it used internally for optimisation.

.lights : Boolean

Whether the material is affected by lights. Default is true.

.transparent : Boolean

Defines whether this material is transparent. Default is true.


See the base Material and ShaderMaterial classes for common methods.
