I have a scene where I want to put an object with a volume renderer under glass, but I've discovered that my volumes don't seem to render when they're behind a transparent object.

enter image description here

I'm new to eevee, and relatively new to blender overall, so I don't know if this is an inherent limitation of the renderer or if there's a setting I need to change, or functionality I need to turn on.

Can I fix this?

    $\begingroup$ could you provide your .blend? Or maybe a screenshot of your shadertree/material settings. For me it's working fiine, with glass, refraction and transparency shader. Alpha set to Multiply $\endgroup$

    $\begingroup$ I could post those, but your suspicion was right - I didn't change the Alpha blend mode. $\endgroup$

Chris pointed me in the right direction - I had the blend mode set to opaque. Changing it to multiply fixed my render.
