Trouble changing material to deffered Decal

So I just wanted to play around making a decal.

I start out by making a material, but when I change the material domain from “surface” to “Deferred Decal”, the preview sphere goes completely black, as in I’m not even sure it’s there anymore.

Also, there seems to be a notification in the stats window:

" [SM5] Material using the DeferredDecak domain need to use the BlendModel Translucent (this saves performance) "

So, I did that, but why should I have to? It doesn’t seem to be an issue with the tutorials , etc. I’ve seen.

Help would be appreciated.

I have the same problem. I’ve tried EVERYTHING I could find, but nothing is working. Can someone please answer this question for the 4.14 version?
