How can I make a Glass Material with a color gradient?

Hello, can anyone tell my how I might be able to make a glass surface material color that has a gradient from Crimson Red to a dark, almost black, red in Rhino 7? I would still like the glass properties if possible as there will be a light behind it. Another hurdle to what I’m trying to achieve is that i need the gradient to start closer to one end. I only have access to the Rhino 7 renderer.

Any insight or suggestions would be greatly appreciated!


I created a video about this a couple of weeks ago that I posted here on Discourse. A search for tinted gradient would’ve given you

Instead of a gradient procedural you could create a black and white gradient in your favourite image editor and use that. It will give you more control over the gradient.


Thank you!
