Glass in White Model render

Steve Jepson
I would like to reproduce the effect of showing the glass with its settings in a White Model render but I don't know how I did it.
The glass in the car windows it not the same as the glass in the windows - but they have been assigned the same material. Glass: Blue/Ice*

?? Where are the settings I must have made to do this?

I guess that the difference you see is because the car probably uses a 0 thickness single surface for the glass, while windows use glass with thickness.

Sadly, graphic overrides only get you about 90% of the way there: you can override everything to be white but glass surfaces, however it will not work with doors/windows and I would guess objects.

The one time I wanted a 'mixed' white render effect, I ended up setting the windows/doors to white paint and keeping the glass and filtering them out of the override.

So if you don't mind messing with your model a bit to achieve what you are after, it can be done.
