Hi,

I'm investigating the use of City Engine for 3D web visualisation of underground services like storm and waste water pipes, telecommunication cables, etc...

In my 3D web scenes I require the terrain to be transparent so that the underground services are visible to the user. I can set the terrain transparency in City Engine, but this transparency isn't transferred into any exported web scenes. Is there a setting I'm missing or is this functionality not currently supported?

I'm using CityEngine 2014.

Thanks

Not sure about 2014, but I just did a quick test in 2015.0 and it worked.

I set my alpha for the terrain layer to 0.5 in the Inspector and set it's state to "Visible" in the export options with "High Quality" textures.
