I was following a tut on transparency and the person mentions turning on color filter in surfacice editor. How do you do that? Do I go to 100%. initially is 0%.

Drag left to right on the arrows to increase/deacrease the value or drag through the existing number, enter a value and hit return, its like any other numeric field in the surface editor, if it has a value of zero its inactive, if it's greater its on. The purpose of the filter is to add color saturation to transparent objects like glass (note you have to have given the color channel of that object a color first), the one below it (additive transparency) adds a tint of that color to any object viewed through that surface from behind it and the one above (Color Highlights) resaturates the surface highlights with the surface color
