Hi niccolo992, here's a quote from CadwayProjects, one of our users:

1. Download the .png seamless chainlink fence file here.
2. Select Material editor and 'Standard' under 'Custom' tab
3. Select the .png seamless chainlink fence file as the 'Colour Map'
4. Chose 'Advanced' under 'More Setings' and select the 'Colour Map Alpha Clips Object' (scissors) tool.

Hi niccolo992, to use a texture with the Glass material, you need to assign a texture to the model in your 3D modelling application.

Then import this model, assign a Glass material to it, set the Texture Influence slider to the maximum value and adjust the transparency and reflection sliders to your liking.

Please note that you can include a transparency mask in the Alpha channel of the texture if it was saved as a 32-bit TGA or BMP texture.

However, it is not possible to create glass that blurs whatever is behind it (as on the photos you posted links to).
