The filter, or transmissive
color, is the color transmitted through transparent or semi-transparent
materials such as glass.
Mapping filter color
You can select a bitmap
map to map the filter color component.
This map applies a transparent-color effect based on the intensity
of the map's pixels.
You can combine a mapped
filter color with
lighting to create effects such as colored
light through a stained-glass window.
shadows cast by transparent objects are
tinted by the filter color.
