Hello, I'm trying to create a material that is similar to polycarbonate, in a sense that it is not fully transparent, during the day it reflects light and during the night, you can see the interior light going through the material to the outside.

Any idea how to do this? I've been trying using the transparency option but it doesn't really work, it makes everything behind VERY dark if you put it together with high reflections.
I also tried using some glass options with a relief so it doesn't look like glass, but I still couldn't match the level of transparency (or lack of) that I need.

I'm willing to give up the idea of a reflective material, and in that case how do you just make this material communicate everything that happens inside through the light that is inside?

I attached some examples.

Thank you.

Hello eplgr,

What version of Lumion are you using?

Does that mean community members are not allowed to post in here? I wasn't really looking for "technical support".

Hi eplgr

Does that mean community members are not allowed to post in here? ...".

Sure they can.  But you will probably find that if you follow the steps Serge mentioned you will get access to the much larger community of Licensed users that you cannot currently see.  They are a great community, and help a lot, but will generally only look at the posts in the Commercial section instead of the Guest Section.

Apart from that, you might have questions at some time, so it makes sense to register your License Key, or if you do not know it and are in a company, to get the person who manages the Licences to do that for you.
