Hi chimera team,


Is there an easy way to control the transparency of a surface and its clipping cap separately?


I managed to do this in one session where the caps are solid, but the rest of the surface is transparent (e.g. see this link: https://drive.google.com/file/d/1-WQtUdYWbITetPl2RgRtU96eXKUj3_v5/view?usp=sharing )

[https://lh5.googleusercontent.com/QS16L041E4BqEh_EynLj2msR0gbNQVXbSZ7QexXke98uMB5CHksPVnpSMyM=w1200-h630-p]<https://drive.google.com/file/d/1-WQtUdYWbITetPl2RgRtU96eXKUj3_v5/view?usp=sharing>

However in a different session I'm struggling to figure out how I achieved this. If I alter the surface colour in the Inspect dialog, it sets the surface and cap transparency to be the same. If I change the suface cap colour in the Effects > Side View dialogue, it gives the desired differential transparency, but colours ALL the surface endcaps identically which isn't what I want.


Help me unpick what I did!


Many thanks
