New PHPP Guide: Formulae to Make Solid Shading Transparent

Dear all,

We have published a guide to applying a transparency factor to objects in the shading sheet in your PHPP.

Let’s say you are modelling a line of trees in your PHPP. The spreadsheet assumes that they are completely opaque, but this isn’t true – some degree of light always gets through. This guide shows you how to apply some transparency to those trees, making your shading more accurate.

It is also useful for modelling non-solid fences, brise-soleils and pergolas.
