Soft Alpha-Map in Material

Hey Guys,

whats a good method to get soft alpha results and still get a normal shading in the material ?
I’ve made a few test but either, the alpha-map is sharp (eventhough the source-map is soft)
or the shading of the material is off and translucent. Do you guys have an idea to work around this issue ?

Greetings,
Chrizzo

Hi! I made a thread about this a while back that might have something that’s useful to you: https://forums.unrealengine.com/showthread.php?126986-Trying-to-understand-UE4-s-translucency-once-and-for-all

A common fix for this issue is to use dithering: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ieHpTG_P8Q0
