"Thanks Steve, But that graphic shown is just a placeholder for a decal. In reality the decals we need to apply are too complicated to construct with surfaces. And they change often over a series of design phases so decals are the only method that is…"

"Sounds silly, I know, but why use a decal here - just create the text as its own surfaces and set them in place? "

Decal transparency

Hi I commented on this about two years ago and since it is still an issue I thought I would bring it up again.when rendering clear bottles with liquid in them I have found that I need to create a surface in front of my bottle for the decal so the package behind renders correctly with transparency and refraction etc. However the background of my decal, which is transparent, creates a darkening effect on whatever is behind it.

Often, during long rendering sessions, I have to leave my computer and do other things and all the time I have to keep checking to see if the rendering has finished. It would be very convenient if there were an alarm that sounded to alert me that the rendering is finished.This could be expanded to include other forms of notification such as send me an email on conclusion ...See More
