When changing objects transparency using a Display Tag or using an effector, you'll most likely run into the undesirable effect of the seeing unwanted parts of the 3D geometry being revealed when that transparency is adjusted. Most of the time, the only way you'd think to get around this would be by rendering everything out and compositing and adjusting opacity in After Effects. In this Quick Tip, I show you how you can easily avoid that and make your 3D geometry fade like it was a 2D object without revealing the unwanted parts of the object geometry.
