Re: Transparent shapes not rendering correctly in best quality
Thanks for your replies. From my tests this evening, a shape (box) that is almost totally opaque and whose materials are unchanged renders as opaque in the 3D view (and in the lower two quality photo settings) but transparent in the two higher quality photo settings.
But when the faces are given a colour it seems to render correctly as almost opaque in the two higher quality settings.

So that seems to be the solution... give the shape a colour, otherwise it is totally transparent in highest quality settings.

The only exception I've found is that when the shape is 100% opaque it renders correctly as opaque at any quality whether unchanged or not, i.e whether uncoloured or coloured.
