I've got the following Octant Cube and would like to make the planes slightly transparent so that I can see what's behind them.
I've gone to Plane > Plane > Color Blue > material section of the Navigation Bar. There, as you can see in the previous image, there's a Surface: Background with a specific color.
Tried in a brute force way changing the Surface to different values other than background and shifting its properties to see if in at least one could get that slight transparency but no success yet.
How to make a simple plane slightly transparent to see the other planes behind?
As per Frederik Steinmetz's suggestion, I've created a new material called Transparent and assigned but can't see any difference.
As per Emir's feedback, I've gone to View > Area > Select Vertical Split. On the new new Viewport, went to Editor Type and selected Shader editor. Inside the Shader Editor Press Shift + A then S and Type "Transparent BSDF". Shift + A Then S again and now type Mix Shader. ConnectED the Transparent Node to the mixer and also connected the Principled BSDF, making sure alpha has 0.750. Connected that Mix Shader Node to de output.
Just did gone through the same process again and still didn't get anything transparent
In order to see if the problem was due to me joining the planes before, created them again and follow the procedure mentioned by Emir but still no success in making it transparent.
