I'm following this tutorial https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y7PdiGXbrD0 But when I got to making the leaves transparent, all of the leaves got super bright and weird. It might have something to do with the HDRI I'm using but it looks it should work.

I think it got messed up when I added an Add Shader and a Translucent BSDF.

Here's what it looks like: enter image description here

    $\begingroup$ It would be more helpful if you posted the node setup of the material for the leaves. And also the settings in the Material Properties tab on the right. $\endgroup$ Feb 24, 2023 at 19:23

  • $\begingroup$ I just saw the problem is located somewhere else. The problem is, Steve uses Cycles, you are using Eevee so it will probably never look the same like in the tutorial since Eevee is not as good with transparency as Cycles. However, you can improve it if you set the Blend Mode to Alpha Hashed instead of Alpha Blend. Doesn't look like Cycles, but at least it's more transparent. Just be aware that if you don't follow the tutorial, the results are likely to be different. $\endgroup$ Feb 24, 2023 at 19:44
  • $\begingroup$ You were absolutely right. Thank you!! $\endgroup$
