Door & Curtain Wall rendering: Frames showing transparent

Johann_P

I'm just starting the rending process in Twinmotion, but I seem to have transparent frames for some of my doors and curtain walls.

 

How do I show glass as transparent and the door frames and mullions as metal?

 

I've gone through some trial and error exercises in Archicad by changing the material of the door, but I seem to be non the wiser......

I don't know if this is the solution (or exactly how to fix it without doing some searching).

But isn't there something in Twinmotion where you can set the material to be double sided.

If it is not set as double sided then it will be transparent in one direction.

 

Here is another post where it was discussed.

Thanks Barry,
I've noticed this with glass railings & of all things, umbrellas....
But this does not solve the garage door issue unfortunately.

The rest of the doors render correctly though....

 

My alternative route is to

 

A) create saved 3D view in the view map and hide the garage doors.

Then in the place of the garage doors show curtain walls that Twinmotion can render correctly.

 

B) Then in all the technical drawings show the garage door and hide the curtian walls in their view maps.

 

A clumsy solution, I admit, and I don't know how to isolate the objects and toggle their visibility as described between viewmaps.

Just bumping up this topic.

 

I still cant seem to solve the garage door material control in Twinmotion.

It only allows one material over the mullions and glass.

The normal double door's materials works fine.

 

Any thoughts on how to solve this would be appreciated.

 

Here are the same 2 doors with various materials.
