#400: Create short blender clips
#369: Blender: blue cloudy haze

Do the following clip:

Camera views the back of the body which is standing in mid air. The body floats forwards towards a halo light (with volumetric shadows, possibly).
The body becomes transparent as it goes into the light, until only the hazy light remains.

Alpha : Transparency of the mesh/material

Use the Alpha material IPO curve for the transparency.

How to do the transparency?
Back to the documentation...

Hmmm... I see the alpha slider in the material panel, but it doesn't work.

I applied the material of the male body to a cube, and managed to have a transparency effect.
However, when I try with the male himself, transparency doesn't work.

Next: create separate issue, with steps to reproduce my problem, and ask for help in forum.
