Minor issue: Transparency value
« on: May 20, 2008, 04:03 PM »
This may seem picky, but the Transparency value for objects is confusing. Since an object's level of transparency (more accurately, translucence, but let's not go too far) goes from opaque (no transparency) to transparent (infinite transparency), wouldn't it make sense for a transparency value of 255 (your highest) to be completely transparent while a value of 0 (your lowest) to be completely opaque?

If 0 is transparent and 255 is opaque, it's really a measure of opacity, not transparency.

Thank you.

Yes i keep meaning to fix this in some way -- changing the label to Opacity is a good idea and i'm going to do that, sanks for suggestion.
