Im following blender gurus How to Make Earth in Blender (Cycles) tutorial, and around the 16 minute mark, when he adds the clouds, mine still end up being opaque. I have followed his exact node setup, but i still dont know where the problem is. I am new to blender, this is my first time making something on this scale

    $\begingroup$ Even though you are using Cycles, you are viewing it in Material Preview mode which uses EEVEE to display your scene (materials in eevee have transparent blend mode set to opaque by default). Press Z in the viewport and select "rendered" from the pie menu. $\endgroup$ Jul 11 at 22:11

try to switch the input nodes of the "mix shader": - transparent shader should be the 2nd dot, while the diffuse one should be the 3rd input node (alpha channel is ok to be at 1st connection)
