I just switched from 2.79 to 2.82 and I face 2 problems. In 2.79 I could simply select a material to be transparent and set the parameters (alpha etc.). I do not find these options in the 2.82 materials menu. Are they gone? Even worse: When I import old files from 2.79 formerly transparent materials are now solid. Do I have to switch back to the old version? I only need simple transparency, no imported images or more complex stuff.


Cycles still works the same.
But in Eevee, you need to enable transparency per material.

Set Blend Mode to Alpha Blend in the material settings.
