Leaf masking

Is there a way to apply a mask for leaves in tree models? I adjusted transparencies and opacity in Transmtur, but the “billboard” of the leaf .tif shows when rendering.

Hi @sfto1, the billboards for the leaves still appear because even though leaves are transparent, their geometry still exist (just invisible). Thus billboards are generated since this is a basic preview that does not consider the materials applied.

Right now, there is no way to select only some parts of the models to appear in proxies.

We plan to allow users to filter unwanted parts of models in the future but this feature has not been developed yet.

Thanks for the reply. I used the material editor in Thea to mask the leaves, so at least it rendered ok.
