Visible light object through transparency?

Unread postby lwik » Fri Jun 21, 2019 4:56 pm

Hello, I asked this question on Discord, I got a response but was unable to find the location to fix it so I will try here.

When I add a light, for example a linear light, and it is behind a transparent object like a window. The light object it's self can be seen? I was told to take the action, "You can set the light invisible to refraction", but I do not know where to set this? I have looked around but I can't seem to find it? In the sample image I have a transparency above the sphere and in between I have a linear light. On the edges in blue you an see the outline of the light but in the transparent area it renders as a white bar, where it should be transparent and just illumination from the light. How and where do I fix this?

I included the project file as well. Any help is appreciated.

Here is the section in the manual: https://clarissewiki.com/4.0/path_depth.html
On the light, set Transmissions Max Depth to 0

Yep, that was it. I'll have to read up on Path Depth now. Thank you!
