A translucent material
transmits light, but unlike a transparent material, it also scatters
the light so those objects behind the material cannot be seen clearly.
Glass on the right
has a light green translucency.
materials can simulate translucency. A
Raytrace material's Translucency color component ignores surface
normal directions, giving the effect of light scattering.
You can also obtain translucency
effects using the
