    I trying to fadeout out geometry. I added a controller for the transparency of the material and checked “thin-walled”. When I now set the transparency to 1 the object is rendering as pure white.

    What am I doing wrong?

    Hi,

    does it work properly without “thin-walled”?

    Nope, then its just black.

    Did some further testing. When I set transparency directly in the material without a controller the objects is transparent like it should be.

    When I control the transparency via a linear float controller and setting the value via puzzle, its not working anymore. When fully transparent the object gets the backgroundcolor.

    Do you have MANY transparent materials going on? Too many can cause issues.

    I found the issue. When the material doesnt have transparency initially set I get this error. When the transparency is set for example to 0.01. Then the transparency can be set via puzzle properly.

    Is this a bug or a feature? When its a feature how can I fix that behavior?

    Hi,

    you may have Auto enabled for transparency. This means that if transparency is not set, the material is considered as opaque.

    Just make it Blend, for example.
