I have an image of a spaceship with the front glass. I want to make a transparent material so that I can see the inner seat etc.
I do not want to change it in the render, but make the material transparent in the 3D View. Screenshot

How can I achieve that and what settings are required to get that transparent effect in the 3D view?

  • $\begingroup$ try this: set up a transparent material, switch to Material Viewport Shading, and under Material Properties > Settings >Viewport Color, bring down Alpha to 0. $\endgroup$ – Zac Jul 13 '17 at 5:50

    $\begingroup$ @ateks you've been using this site long enough to understand that questions like this are better answered if you specify what render engine you are using, and if you post images of your current settings. $\endgroup$ – user1853 Jul 13 '17 at 7:02

Ateks, this is a simple example with blender render, explaining what Zac said above in comments:

simply switching to cycles (in this case) gives a similar basic material, and works the same:
