Transparency modes for images:

After you have placed the image in a space, a bar with transparency modes appears above the image. These modes assign their materials to images. You can select one of the two modes for your image:

Default mode:

This mode assigns material that supports semi-transparent textures using information from the alpha channel (PNG only). It is mainly used for translucent glasses, lighting, glow effects, shadows, clouds, fog images, interfaces with transparent gradients, etc.

To make an image semi-transparent:

  1. Using the Color tool apply PBR or Unlit materials with the color white and with 0.98 Alpha (or less if needed) to your image with Default mode.

  1. Apply Additive material with the color white and with any Alpha on your image with Default mode. (For glow and lighting effects).


UI Element

By default, images imported into spaces automatically adjust to the size of the user. This is typically okay for environmental elements. But it's not always useful when importing elements with precise measurements like menus and user interfaces.

From the Preview window, toggle on UI Element in order to set a fixed pixel density for your images. Read more about this feature below.
