FILMS 4 TRANSPARENCY is a unique film festival since it focuses on anti- corruption, using cinema as a vehicle for reflection and critical debate on this complex. Copenhagen. The Third Edition of Films 4 Transparency. Films for Transparency presents a series of eight new documentary films as an integral part of the 18th. Guide for using Transparency in your Materials. However inside of Unreal Engine 4(UE4), Transparency is used to describe if a surface is see-through or not.
Special guest panellist Patrick Alley , founder Global Witness. October 23, Time: Using the architecture Wylie helped to engineer, people are perceived as observable, measurable data sets, allowing for the prediction and modification of behaviour.
This short film acts as a beacon to investigate a system that is on its way to becoming an all encompassing new power structure that we currently know far too little about. After the screening the Plenary 3 speakers will discuss the issues raised in the film with Jess Search. Khatera is 23 and pregnant. Both this unborn child and her young daughter were conceived following sustained sexual abuse by her father. Her fight to bring her father to justice exposes the lack of legal protection in a country where women rarely attempt to seek justice for themselves.
The courts finally take notice of her case, after she tells her story on television, leading to a landmark conviction using DNA evidence. Yet this action turns her family and the community against her and she is forced into hiding.
Her uncles believe only the death of Khatera and her children will end the shame on their family and exonerate their brother. Khatera was smuggled out of the country for her own safety and now lives in France with her fiance and her children. Mladic was one of the most infamous figures of the Bosnian war of the s and was synonymous with the murder of over 7, Muslim men and boys in Srebrenica in — the worst crime on European soil since World War II.
They will be joined on the panel by the filmmakers Rob Miller and Henry Singer. The documentary, starts in when police shot dead 37 miners in Marikana. It follows two irrepressible activists as they rise up out of their poverty stricken mining community in a historic and ongoing fight for justice and dignity. She is a tireless campaigner in the ongoing struggle for justice and compensation for the widows, orphans and homes for everyone in the community.
Now that the Blend Mode has been correctly set, look for the following Material Expression nodes. You can find the nodes by using the following names to search for them in the Material Pallet. With the correct Material Expression nodes added it is now time to hook everything together.
For this example, a color of white was input as the default color. Next, connect the output of the Vector Parameter node into the Base Color input. Make sure to press both the Apply and Save buttons and the closed down the Material Editor.
Now we need to find an object to place the Material Instance on so we can see the Material in action. Once in a location you like, release the Left Mouse Button to place the mesh in the level. Objects that make use of Transparency can display scene reflections if the following options are set.
However keep in mind that having a lot of translucent Materials that have reflections enabled could cause performance issues. When completed, your Material Graph should look something like this. Rename the two Material Expression nodes to Metallic and Roughness. Set the default value of the Metallic Material Expression to 1.
Now when you look at the level, you should be able to see reflections and transparency on the mesh. By adjusting the parameters of the Material Instance, you can make the Transparency have extremely different looking results.
Transparency can be used to simulate a variety of different real world surface types. Below is a list of some of the most common uses for Transparency inside UE4. The term used to describe this problem is called Overdraw and overdraw occurs when you have lots and lots of objects with Transparency rendering on top of one another. The reason that overdraw can cause such a performance problem is because the rendering cost to render transparency becomes more and more expensive for each layer of Transparency that you introduce.
To help you better identify if this issue is happening and where, UE4 has a special view mode called Shader Complexity mode. Shader Complexity mode shows you how complex a given surface is to render by using colors to show complexity. The more green that you see, the cheaper things are to render and the more red that you see, the more and more expensive things become to render.
To enable this view mode, all you have to do is the following. Currently the View Mode is set to Lit the default. From the menu, select the Shader Complexity option. After clicking on the Shader Complexity option, the level viewport should look like the following.
From this view you can tell where possible performance issues could be happening. The areas that are in red are becoming very expensive to render while areas that you see in green are cheaper to render. While it is not percent possible or advisable to get rid of all overdraw, this view mode can make it very helpful when trying to figure out exactly where your performance issues could be coming from.
When having multiple Transparent objects in the scene close together, you will sometime notice that the Transparent objects have issues figuring out which object to render in front or behind the other transparent objects. The following example demonstrates this happening using the Materials that were created above and the lit smoke VFX from the Starter Content. Notice how the smoke will be in front of the meshes and then all of a sudden it will pop behind a mesh.
To prevent this from happening, the Translucency Sort Priority needs to be set so that the VFX of the smoke will always render on top of other translucency in the scene. First select the object or objects that you want to render on top of all other Translucency in the level by clicking on them with the Left Mouse Button.
For this example, we will be selecting the smoke VFX. In the Details panel, under the Rendering section, click on the White Triangle to expose additional properties.
From the new list of options, look for the Translucency Sort Priority and then input a value of By default, everything that is added to a level has a Translucency Sort Priority of 0.

This article examines the evolving definition of transparency from a postmodernist approach. It traces the meaning of transparency from its use. When you hear the word transparency, politics and business ethics often come to mind. But I want to talk about a different area of transparency. For media agencies, transparency remains an important and controversial issue. With most agencies running an opaque and non-transparent.
