This is a suggestion about the use of the
opacity properties of material. As it says in the documentation,
transparent must be set to true in order to make
opacity work, but I think most of the people that sets
opacity < 0 assumes that the material is going to be translucent without doing anything else.
I didn´t searched a lot, but the documentation shows (or so I understand) that it can be because of the color transparency over material. If this is the only reason, shouln’t
transparent property be in color? or maybe material should have another property like
colorBlend, instead of
I understand that
transparent property is useful in material, but maybe it should be a read only property that returns
opacity < 1 ?
