The Opacity input is used when using the Translucent Blend Mode, typically for Translucent, Additive, and Modulated materials. You can input a value between 0 and 1, where:

  • 0.0 represents completely transparent.

  • 1.0 represents fully opaque.

Opaque and masked blend modes also use Opacity when using one of the subsurface shading models.

Welcome to the new Unreal Engine 4 Documentation site!

We're working on lots of new features including a feedback system so you can tell us how we are doing. It's not quite ready for use in the wild yet, so head over to the Documentation Feedback forum to tell us about this page or call out any issues you are encountering in the meantime.

We'll be sure to let you know when the new system is up and running.
