I’m trying to make a sci-fi style transparent display. Basically a flattened cube with a glass type material and visible elements inside it. Easy for text but I need this to display a real world drone photo. I can use ‘image as planes’ and set that in the glass, but it’s very dark. I guess the problem is that ‘image as planes’ is closer to simulating a painting that just reflects light. But what I want is like a screen where each pixel in the image is in fact an emitter. I don’t want to just add light sources as they’ll have an effect on the rest of the scene (unless you can make a light just reflect off a specific object?).
Any ideas ?
