Solid transparent volume
by Frank Feijen on Apr 15, 2016 at 12:03:08 pm
Is there a way to create a shader for an object, that shows a transparent silhouet of the object? Just lowering the opacity shows all the details inside. I only want to see the silhouet, nothing inside, no shading, but transparent....
either with the standardrender or even better with octane

if I understand your description turn off the Color and Reflectance channels and use Transparency - just set the color in transparency to something other than white, for only being visible with something behind it or with some Luminance to always see it - or a combo of Alpha and Luminance. That works as long as your object isn't intersecting some other object or sitting on a floor or something, as long as there is a little separation it should work.
