I need to apply an alpha texture mask over a texture material in order to be transparent in the viewport. As is, it is black in EEVEE.

How do I modify this file to make the viewport show the mask as a transparent in the 3d view?

enter image description here


For it to work I changed the Blend Mode to Apha Clip. That's all it needed for it to work.

Materials tab> Options> Blend Mode> Alpha Clip

    $\begingroup$ Are you talking about the materials tab in the properties editor? I can't find any "options" in there. $\endgroup$ Aug 4 '19 at 16:13

  • $\begingroup$ Note: you must set this in EVEE, because LookDev works by using EVEE. Then you can set the Render Engine back to Cycles, for rendering. $\endgroup$ Dec 22 '19 at 12:18

Eric, this only seems to work if Eevee is active in all viewports.

For example, if i change one viewport to shaded, then the alpha texture disappears completely from all other viewports. Anyone experiencing this behaviour?
