Im looking to fade elements of plan & elevation detail in Layout, to highlight a specific area in a space.
coming from Autocad I’d usually overlay a white fill in the layout and change the transparency to fade the content of the viewport.
I’ve tried something similar in Rhino, by importing a plain white jpeg using ‘Picture’ into the Layout, placing it over the detail then changing the transparency via materials.
It looked like it done the job on screen (Layout in Rendered mode). Then when printing / exporting to PDF, the faded White overlay just plots as pure white and I lose the transparency.
I’d like to be able to do this in the Layout page. Does anyone have any idea how to do this? Am I not doing something right at the printing stage?
Worth noting, All my details are in Arctic mode with clipping planes in each. I tried placing the white overlay in modelspace at the clipping point, it works in a way but id doesn’t fade the cutting edges, which is no good.
Need a fix for this asap!
Many thanks in advance.
