Transparent polys render black over Image World and Texture Image backdrops. Is this a known issue in LW 11.01?
Search of forum(s) returns zero.

I don't have this problem in 11.0.3

An example ?

Is transparency checked in globals it's usually off by default

And that's what is was! So what this says is that VPR doesn't support LW's "old" native transparency rendering, because an F9 render looks just fine WITHOUT Render Globals Raytrace Transparency (RTT) enabled. Interesting. And one wonders why I didn't even suspect RTT was off when we've been told VPR IS the native LW renderer.

Thanks for the tip.
