Transparent curves

I’m just tryna make some curves have a ‘transparent’ property value of like 50 percent.

I thought this would be easy… What am I missing?

Works here…

The curves are set at 50% transparency and are in front of the hatch…

This is perhaps a better example - white background and curves in ~10% increments of opacity, 10% on the left and 100% on the right.

That’s awesome! :sunglasses:

I’m missing the GUI part of it though. Maybe I’m being forgetful idk…

What’s the trick?

somem bout these tabs look different:

I’ve never really changed curve transparency before, so I don’t really have memory of the interface in previous versions…

lol that’s so cool! what’s the secret? :sweat_smile:

Properties>Color picker, lower the transparency slider…

And was like um somem different. :joy:

That post was from 2016, before transparency was possible I think.

You can also assign transparency by layer…

That’s awesome. Yeah I’m familiar with using materials on surfaces n’ stuff, but I’ve not really tried it on curves until today.

And now I see these options change depending on the type of entity selected, which I guess makes sense, but the curves threw me a curve ball :sweat_smile:


I was looking for ‘material’ and couldn’t make it make sense.

But I see the trick now :sunglasses: :beers:cheers!

I’m working on a logo project, where I have curves overlaying eachother and over a picture, and this new additional trick is awesome (new to me anyway) :smiley:

cant show whole logo though top secret. doing some updates to it :slightly_smiling_face:
